PREFACE. 



In writing the History and (Jenealogy of the Macy Family the 
author confines himself to the American branches only. He wishes 
to take this opportunity to express his gratitude to those members 
of the family and others who have so kindly assisted him in collecting 
information. Although he has spared no effort to secure accuracy and 
completeness, it is more than possible there may be some errors as to 
names and dates, for which he craves due indulgence, as he has labored 
under many disadvantages, one of the greatest of which has been the 
neglect of some branches of the family in keeping a correct record 
of births, marriages and deaths. Another and perhaps more serious 
obstacle has been the indifference shown by many, who have not even 
furnished the facts in relation to their immediate family, which has 
been obtained from other sources, and therefore may be incomplete. 
A difference may be discovered in some of the early dates, which can 
only be explained as follows : Our Puritan forefathers, in their desire 
to do away with everything that in any manner appertained to the 
popish times or was of heathenish origin, changed the time of the 
commencement of the year from the first of January to the 25th of 
March, and kept all their records by numbers instead of names of 
months ; for instance, their first month was March, and many of the 
early town records of this country are marked thus : Twelfth mo 163|, 

meaning either February the twelfth month 1634, or February the 

1 



ii PREFACE. 

second month 1635. Again, the Society of Friends, of which the great 
majority of the Macy family have been members since the beginning 
of the eighteenth century, used numbers instead of names to designate 
days and months, calling January the first month^ February the 
second month, etc. It is therefore readily perceived, in receiving 
records kept by some of the earlier members of the family, where 
the date was in numbers the diflSculty in deciding whether first month 
meant January or March; the following plan has therefore been 
adopted. Where it is not positively known whether the date was in 
the Puritan, Friends, or present style, the latter has been selected.

MACY GENEALOGY. 



■^♦— 



From the earliest records of civilization, reli^on has been the greatest 
power on earth ; a mighty uncompromising potentate, conquering with a 
two-edged sword, but holding its captives with a silken cord. Its throne 
is the human mind ; its power and strength the immortal soul. Since the 
Christian era, we have a more perfect record of its influence. It has 
thrown out its tendrils, entwining every member of the body politic, until 
within its all-powerful grasp, the destinies of nations have been rocked 
and swayed. Its movements are as varied as its power is great. It 
sheathes and unsheathes the sword. It binds nation to nation, and at its 
bid, continents tremble with the shock of contending hosts. It raises 
rulers among the people, and anon, thrones are undermined, and, tottering, 
fall. 

During the middle ages, western Europe was subject to spasmodic 
religious reviv-als. The clergy kindled from the altars the fires of a holy 
enthusiasm, and the cry "To Jerusalem! To Jerusalem!" echoing from 
hill-top to mountain-top, called the masses to weary pilgrimages and 
crusades against infidels. With their swords at their sides, and their 
spears in their rests, the high and the low, the lord and the slave, mingled 
together on foot, actuated by the same holy desire, to rid the earth of 
unbelievers. Love of arms contributed greatly to this intense religious 
fervor. With blind enthusiasm, perseverance, and long-suffering endurance, 
they followed the banner of the cross, yielding to it a knightly loyalty ; a 
loyalty which renders their history a lofty epic, and furnishes later days 
with examples of chivalric devotion. The close of tlie crusades against 
the Mussulmen in the sixteenth century, left Europe in a fitting state for 
the rapidly approaching reformation. The reformation was of no sudden 
growth. During the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the public discussion 
of various religious topics by ecclesiastics, and good and pious men, had 



4 MACY GENEALOGY. 

brought them unwittingly to the idea of emancipation from the tyranny of 
their spiritual oppressors. To discard the priest, and bring the disciple 
into direct communion with Christ, was the fundamental principle of their 
action. Each generation added in passing to the number of reformers, 
until Pope Leo X, driven by the necessities of an impoverished exchequer, 
offered to the devotees of the Church of Rome, unlimited indulgences. 
The hour had come for the first great manifestation of resistance to the 
priestly laws; the issue was made, and Martin Luther stood before the 
world the apostle and champion of the reformation. An Austin friar, 
a doctor of laws in the University of Wittemberg, a close reasoner, and 
above all a man of intense convictions, he seemed formed by Providence 
for his great work. The pope's bull of excommunication, with the canon 
law, and many of the tracts of his opponents were publicly burned. The 
sparks from that fire ignited the whole of Europe, and from its ashes, 
rose up Protestantism. Following Martin Luther in Germany, came John 
Calvin in France, while converts to the new faith were not wanting in 
any town, village or hamlet throughout Europe. The pope's refusal, in 
the early part of the century, to grant to Henry VIII, a divorce from 
Queen Catherine, and. to sanction his union with Anne Boleyn, induced that 
monarch to declare himself free from the jurisdiction of Rome, and parlia- 
ment in 1534, conferred on him the title of " The Supreme head of the 
Church of England on earth." The differences between Henry and Clement 
were purely of a temporal nature ; but the result opened the door more 
readily for the reformers in England. Henry commenced his leadership 
of the Church of England, by punishing all those who dared to doubt his 
supreme authority, whether Protestants or Catholics. This action tended 
to open the eyes of the people. Upon the death of Henry and the 
succession to the throne of Edward VI, Cranmer and his followers found 
flocking to the standard of the refonned Church, many who before had 
not dared to avow their belief for fear of punishment. During the brief 
life of this boy-king, the affairs of the realm were controlled by sixteen 
executors named by his father. Of these, first in power and influence 
was Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, a leader of the reformation. 
Edward died in 1558, when his sister Mary assumed the reins of govern- 
ment. Her reign was a sad impediment to the progress of the good cause, 
for she ardently espoused the interests of the Church of Rome, and 
endeavored, though with ill success, to reestablish the authority of the 




MACY GENEALOGY. 5 

pope. The year 1556 added the illustrious names of Cranmer, Ridley 
and Latimer, to the growing catalogue of martyrs. During the entire 
progress of the reformation, its followers were deemed heretics by the 
Catholics. As such, they were persecuted, driven from their homes, thrown 
into prison, broken on the wheel, burned at the stake; in fine, made to 
suffer all the tortures which an educated cruelty could suggest, and a 
fiendish hatred execute. While martyrs in countless numbers were bap- 
tizing the soil of England with their blood, in France, the Huguenots, the 
followers of John Calvin, were being massacred and exiled from their 
homes and country. No country, no spot where the new faith had been 
promulgated, can furnish any contrast to the mournful story of the English 
reformation. 

High hopes and bright prospects for freedom and happiness, filled the 
hearts of the people, when England's crown was placed upon Elizabeth's 
head. Though a Catholic in habit, she soon commenced to drop Romish 
forms and ceremonies, and gradually assumed those of the Protestant church, 
until conversion rendered complete the change. The fact was hailed with 
joy by the exiled, who flocked back to their native land. But to their 
sorrow, they found lurking in the Church of England, customs and 
observances which suggested Rome to their purified minds, and the curtain 
falls upon the reign of Elizabeth, with the Protestants and Puritans 
fiercely contending around a trembling and divided church. 

When James I came upon the throne of England, in 1603, the 
Puritans were being harrassed by oppressive laws and were being persecuted 
by the Protestants with almost as much severity as the Protestants had been 
persecuted by the Catholics. One John Robinson, who was the leader of 
a Puritan church, advocated the removal of his congregation to Holland, 
where they were promised religious freedom. And in 1608, Robinson and his 
entire congregation removed to Amsterdam, where they were unmolested in 
their worship. They were Englishmen, and the innate love of country was 
strong within them; they longed to see her enlightened upon religion, so 
that they once more might either tread their native soil or have England's 
flag their flag, and England's government their government. It was 
therefore resolved after much fasting and prayer to emigrate to America, 
where they were assured they could worship according to the dictates of 
their own conscience and yet be under the guardian care of England. 
They made all their arrangements to embark for that land of promise and 



6 MACY GENEALOGY. 

sailed from Holland on the 2l8t of July, 1620 on board the Speedwell, for 
Southampton, England. A few days before sailing — on a day of fasting 
and prayer — Robinson, who was to remain in Holland with part of the 
congregation, preached to them a sermon full of Christian liberty so different 
from what might be expected in the age of bigotry in which he lived. His 
text was Ezra, chap, viii, v. 21. " I proclaimed a fast there at the river 
Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right 
way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance." "Brethren," 
said he, "we are now quickly to part from one another, and whether I may 
ever live to see your face on earth any more, the God of heaven only knows; 
but whether the Lord hath appointed that or not, I charge you before God 
and his blessed angels, that you follow me no farther than you have seen me 
follow the Lord Jesus Christ. If God reveal anything to you, by any other 
instrument of his, be as ready to receive it, as ever you were to receive any 
truth by my ministry; for I am verily persuaded — I am very confident, 
that the Lord has more truth yet to break forth out of his holy word. For 
ray part I cannot sufficiently bewail the condition of the reformed churches 
who are come to a period in religion, and will go at present no farther than 
the instruments of their reformation. The Lutherans cannot be drawn to 
go beyond what Luther saw : whatever part of his will our good God has 
revealed to Calvin, they will rather die than embrace it And the Calvinists 
you see stick fast where they were left by that great man of God, who yet 
saw not all things. This is a misery much to be lamented, for though they 
were burning and shining lights in their times, yet they penetrated not into 
the whole counsel of God; but were they now living, would be as willing 
to embrace farther light, as that which they first received. I beseech you, 
remember it is an article of your church covenant, "that you be ready to 
receive whatever truth shall be made known to you from the written word 
of God." Remember that, and every other article of your sacred covenant. 
But I must here withal exhort you to take heed what you receive as truth. 
Examine it, consider it, and compare it with other scriptures of truth, before 
you receive it, for it is not possible that the Christian world should come 
so lately out of such thick anti-Christian darkness, and that perfection 
of knowledge should break forth at once. I must also advise you to 
abandon, avoid, and shake off the name of Brownist. It is a mere nick- 
name, and a brand for the making religion and the professors of it odious 
to the Christian world." These early Puritans never undertook anything 



MACY GENEALOGY. 



even of a secular nature without first praying to God to guide their steps 
aright. During their residence in Holland they had endeared themselves 
to the inhabitants by their quiet, peaceable habits, industry and frugality, 
and by their sincere devotion to their religion ; so that when they set sail 
it drew tears from the eyes of the Dutch, who felt they were parting from 
brothers instead of strangers who had been sojourning with them but a few 
years. The Speedwell arrived safely at Southampton and her passengers 
were transferred to the May-flower, which vessel sailed finally on the 21st 
of August, 1620, for America, the number of her passengers being increased 
by additions at Southampton until it numbered one hundred souls. 
Their names were :

On the 21st of December, 1620, these wanderers landed at Plymouth in 
America, and there with bended knee breathed forth their prayers of thank- 
fulness to Heaven for their prosperous voyage and their safe deliverance 
from the storms and dangers of the ocean on the shores of, to them, the 
promised land, little thinking that they were laying a foundation upon 



8 MACY GENEALOGY. 

which would rise up a people that would throw off the yoke of royal 
sovereignty, defy pariiament, and build thereon the mightiest republic on 
earth. 

The pilgrim fathers of the May-flower had been educated by necessity 
and from religious convictions to habits of industry, simplicity and frugality, 
which proved so conducive to happiness and prosperity in their new homes. 
The news of their successful landing, 'of the delightful climate, of the 
luxurious growth of vegetation, and above all of their being untrammeled 
by any sectarian creed, and at full liberty to worship God as they pleased, 
soon. reached their native land; and their friends rapidly flocked hither to 
join them from all parts of England. [We find from the early records of 
many of the New England towns, that a goodly number of their early 
settlers were from Wiltshire, England. Wiltshire is one of the southern 
counties of England, and has always been an agricultural district. The 
farmers, or as they were more frequently designated, planters, raised princi- 
pally wheat and barley ; those in the nortL.Qf Wiltshire^ in addition^ paid 
much attention to raising cattle, and those in the south to raising sheep. 
The manufacture of cheese was an important item and was very extensively 
carried on, and to the present dag^ they retain their celebrity, the Wiltshire 
cheese being universally known./: The town of Salisbury, the capital of the 
county, situated on the river Avon, 82 miles W. S. W. from London, was 
once famous for the manufacture of woolen goods, but that day has long 
since passed. Near this town, in the parish of Chilmark, resided, prior to 
his embarkation for America, Thomas Macy, our ancestor. 

It is greatly to be regretted that y/e have no record of the name of the 
vessel in which he crossed the Atlantic, or of the exact date of his arrival, 
and also whether any other member or members of the family came with 
him. It is doubtful whether the name of the vessel will ever be obtained, 
as many records have been searched within the past year to establish that 
fact without satisfactory results. As to the date of the arrival of Thomas 
Macy in this country it was probably in the year 1635, but certainly not 
later than 1639 ; and it is equally probable that one or more members 
of his family came with him. Though of one fact we are certain, Thomas 
Macy was the fountain head of the Macy family in this country, none other 
of that name having any male descendant. It may not be uninteresting 
to many to know what record we have of one other by the name of Macy 
who early settled in this country.

Qeorge Macy appears to have been one of the prominent men in the 
settlement of Taunton. He was elected deputy to represent Taunton at 
general court in 1672, 1674, 1675, 1676, 1677, and 1686, and most probably 
served every year from 1672, to 1686, but the foregoing dates are the only 
ones found. In 1643, there were 54 persons in Taunton between the ages 
of 16 and 60, subject to military duty, and the name of Qeorge Macy 
appears amongst the number. He was a lieutenant during the Philip war. 
He died Aug. 17th, 1693, leaving no sons but several daughters. One 
daughter was probably Elizabeth, who married John Hodges, May 15th, 
1672 ; and another, Hannah, married James Blake Feb. 6th, 1681 ; 
and another, Rebecca, who married Benjamin Williams, March 18th, 
1690. We find the name of Samuel Macy amongst the inhabitants of 
Taunton in 1668, and we find no farther record of him ; it is therefore 
reasonable to suppose he was a son of George Macy, but died single prior 
to 1693, the time of his father's death. The only link obtained wherein 
there is any reason for supposing him to be a relation to Thomas Macy 
other than the fact of their being the only two persons as heads of families 
by the name of Macy in this country at that time, is the following letter. 
This letter was written by a committee appointed by the town of Taunton 
in response to an invitation to the inhabitants to take up their abode at 




10 MACY GENEALOGY. 

Barnstable, Sandwich, Yarmouth, and Eastham (towns on Cape Cod), 
during the continuance of the Philip war. The letter was probably 
written in 1677, and the committee consisted of Richard "Williams, Walter 
Deane, George Macy, and William Hawey, and they wrote: "We bless 
God that he^th given us so much room in your hearts, that you so freely 
tender to us a part with you in your houses, fields, and provisions, at such 
a time, when the Lord is threatening us with the bereavement of our own. 
It much comforteth us in this day of darkness and distress, we shall 
want no succor you are able to afford us. We therefore return you all 
serious thanks for your sincere and abundant love, beseeching the Lord to 
continue and increase your peace, and ability, and promptness to relieve 
the distresses in this evil day. Nevertheless, upon our serious and mature 
deliberation upon, and consideration of, your great offer, we cannot, at 
present, comply with a motion to remove and quit our places, and leave our 
habitations to be a desolation, and that because we fear we should in so 
doing be wanting to the name of God, and the interest of Christ, in this 
place, and bewray much diffidence and cowardice, and give the adversary 
occasion to triumph over us, to the reproach of that great and fearful name 
of God, that is called on us." The above named towns on Cape Cod are 
located very near together and are the nearest points on the main land to 
the island of Nantucket, at which place Thomas Macy was at this time 

^^^siding, and was connected by marriage with many families on the cape. 

[The first positive record we have of Thomas Macy in this country is when 
he was made a freeman * y* 6 day y* 7*** month (September), 1639, at New- 
bury, Mass. No person was qualified to vote until he took the freeman's 
oath. Newbury was first settled in 1635, but the list of names of the first 
settlers is very incomplete, therefore we can only assume it as reasonable 
that he resided here some time prior to his taking the freeman's oath in 
September, 1639, particularly as the records show that many persons lived 
here several years before taking said oath. 

The population of Newbury increasing rapidly, quite a number of the 
inhabitants concluded to move a short distance off, where it was not so 
thickly populated; which project they carried out in 1639, and settled at 
a place which they called Salisbury, after Salisbury in England. The 
following list of the first settlers of Salisbury may be found interesting : '

VWe find Thomas Macy frequently held positions of honor and trust in the

Hundreds of thousands of people throughout the middle, southern and 
western states, look back to New England as the birth-place of their 
ancestors. They turn their thoughts towards it with just and unfeigned 
pride as the great nursery of American skill and enterprise, and they 
cannot but look towards it with feelings of reverence as the cradle in 
which American Independence was rocked, and the ground upon which 
it proclaimed its manhood. Ajid upon many a sacred spot in those New 
England states did our forefathers stand side by side and shoulder to 
shoulder, and defend and maintain that glorious manhood which has been 
transmitted as an inheritance to the present generation. The virtues 
of New England have not been confined within the borders of this great 
country, now washed by the Atlantic and Pacific, but their influence is 
being felt by every country on the face of the earth. Many of her sons 
have navigated the trackless ocean, ploughing through the mighty waters, 
fearlessly contending with howling storms and raging tempests, until, with 
their hereditary indomitable will and unconquerable perseverance, they 
have traversed every quarter of the globe and scattered broadcast the 
seeds of her industrial institutions, which have not only taken root, but 
have grown, blossomed and brought forth fruit: the results of which, 
through the thousand channels of commerce, have wended their way back 
to enrich not only New England but this entire country. 

She has brought forth warriors and statesmen whose names are indelibly 
engraved upon her monument of greatness ; she has had her Greene, her 
Putnam, her Franklin, her Adams, her Everett and her Webster. 

But with all her power and all her greatness she has a bar upon her 
escutcheon which time never can effitce and history never forget. It was 
her religious persecution and fanaticism. No sooner had our Pilgrim 
Others found themselves firee from the religious oppressions of their native 

^Becords of ths Colony of MassachuseUs Bay m New England. 



14 MACY GENEALOGY. 

laod, than they assumed the right to dictate, and usurped the power to 
say which was the true church, and to condemn the unbelievers. The 
followers of George Fox, the founder of the Society of Friends in England, 
fled to this country that they too might enjoy religious freedom ; but no 
sooner did they arrive here than they were branded by the Puritan clergy 
as witches, heretics, and of being possessed of the devil. And the heart- 
rending cruelties of the reformation were reenacted. The people derisively 
called the Friends, Quakers^ and every one appearing in the plain and 
simple garb of a Friend was immediately subjected to every possible 
indignity; nor were women or children spared. Women and young ^rls 
were stripped to the waist and lashed in the public squares until the blood 
flowed to the very ground, they unflinchingly suflfered their ears to be cut 
ofl^ unmercifdlly were they tied to the tails of carts and dragged through 
the streets, and with an unfaltering step and a quiet, serene countenance 
did both men and women ascend the scaffold and there render up their 
lives, without a reproach upon their lips; and for what? for the sake 
of their religion. The sufferings and persecutions of the early Friends is 
a sad history, and in reviewing the history of New England we approach 
this period with feelings of both regret and gratification. Regret, that 
such dark days should ever have hung over New England ; gratification, 
that she has thrown off that mantie of darkness and has secured to her 
people unlimited religious liberty. 

This subject, the persecution of Friends, was not touched upon without 
great reluctance in this work, but as it exercised so much influence over 
the actions of our ancestors it became necessary. In the years 1656 and 
1657, many laws were passed in Massachusetts detrimental, not only to 
the liberty of those professing the belief in the doctrines as promulgated 
by the Society of Friends, but to their lives also. One law, was banishing 
all Friends or Quakers from Massachusetts, prohibiting them from returning 
under penalty of death ; another, was imposing a fine upon any one who 
should harbor or entertain any one of the sect, giving the court permission 
to impose additional penalties should it see fit so to do. I Still another law 
was passed making it a misdemeanor for any one to preach to the people 
on the Sabbath except regularly ordained ministers of the church. This 
latter law was made to restrain Joseph Peasley and Thomas Macy ^ from 

' Coffin'B Mitory of Neidntry, p. 68. 



MACY GENEALOGY. 15 

exhorting the people on the Sabbath in the absence of a minister. It 
appears that in 1657 the inhabitants of Salisbury were somewhat divided 
upon the subject of religion, many upholding the doctrines of Joseph 
Peasley a Baptist, but the larger portion indorsing those of William 
Worcester of the old Puritan church. The former petitioned to have the 
town divided ; the latter remonstrated against it, contending they required 
the support of the entire town to sustain their minister. These petitions 
were submitted to the general court in May 1658. The court decided that 
the town should not be divided, and that all the inhabitants should attend 
the old meeting and pay their proportion towards the support of the 
minister, Mr. Worcester. This order many of the inhabitants refused 
to obey, and in October we find the following : " This court hath been fiiUy 
informed that Joseph Peaslee and the rest of the inhabitants have slighted 
and neglected the order of this court, it is therefore ordered by authority 
of this court that the recorder for the county of Suffield issue his warrant 
requiring Joseph Peaslee, Thomas Macy and all the rest of the inhabitants 
of the new towne, being masters of families, to make their appearance 
before the county court to be held at Salisbury to answer for their 
disobedience in not complying with the said order and the said county 
court is hereby empowered, authorized and required to proceed against 
all such of them as by their appearance shall not make it clear that they 
have seen this order, performed their duty and repaired to the public 
worship of God on the Lord's day at the old towne to fine them for every 
days absence 6 shillings." This order passed on the 26th of October, 1658 ; 
on the 29th of same month another order passed "that Joseph Peaslee 
and Thomas Macy do appear before the general court to answer for their 
^orderly practices.^^ 

^Thomas Macy was a man of great energy and determined will, and 
evidently came to the conclusion that he would not submit to the bigoted 
laws of the rulers who were entirely governed by the clergy if it were 
possible to find a place where religion was not a sin unless observed 
according to the views and doctrines of the majority of the Pilgrims. 
His mind being engaged with this idea it is easily understood why, in the 
early part of 1659, himself with nine others should purchase the island 
of JSTantucket? The purchase of which was concluded and the deed signed 
July 2d, T559. Nantucket was originally under the jurisdiction of the 
state of New York, and the early deeds and records in relation to the 



16 MACY GENEALOGY. 

island are deposited in jbhe archives at Albany, N. Y. In 1856, Franklin 
B. Hough compiled from official records in the office of the Secretary 
of State at Albany, New York, many very valuable and interesting papers 
relative to Nantucket, which the Hon. John V. L. Pmyn had published 
in an edition of one hundred and fifty copies for private distribution, 
feeling that they were of too much interest to many of the descendants 
of Nantucket to be kept in oblivion. To that work (a copy of which 
the author has in his library) are we indebted for the following correct 
copies of deeds and some of the letters relating to the management of the 
island as late as 16S7. We owe Dr. Hough a debt of gratitude for his 
labors. 

The following deeds are all that relate to the island of Nantucket :

Priviledge of the (aid Ifland, and Appurtenances thereof, &c. 

At Salilbury, 

February:. -59. 

At a Meeting of the (aid Purchafers, or the major Part of them, approved of and 
allowed by the reft, together w*** fome others that were owned for AiTociated, as 
will hereafter appeare \ it was agreed, and determined, and appointed as folio weth, 
viz' That thefe ten Owners will admit of ten more Partners, who fliall have equal 
Proportion, Power, and Intereft with themfelves And that either of the Purchafers 
aforementioned ftiall have Liberty to take a Partner whom he pleafe, not being 
juftly excepted againft by the reft. At the Meeting was owned Partner with 
Chriftopher Huffye, Robert Pyke ; Robert Barnard was owned a Partner with 
Thomas Barnard ; Edward Starbuck was owned to bee Thomas Macy's Partner ; 
and Triftram Coffin Jun'. Partner with Stephen Greenleafe ; and James Coffin 
Partner with Peter Coffin. 

At the fame Meeting, It was Ordered and Determined, that there ftiould bee ten 
other Inhabitants admitted into the Plantation, who fliall have fuch Accommodations 
as the Owners or Purchafers fliall judge meet, as namely, neceflary Tradefmen and 
Seamen. 

In the summer of 1659, Thomas Macy gave shelter to four of the 
persecuted sect. Complaint was made against him and he was summoned 
to appear before the general court and answer the charges preferred. 
Instead of complying with the requisition he sent a letter of which the 
following is a copy : 




MACY GENEALOGY. 21 

" This is to entreat the honored court not to be offended because of my 
non-appearance. It is not from any slighting the authority of the honored 
court, nor from feare to answer the case ; but I have bin for some weeks 
past veiy ill, and am so at present; and notwithstanding my illness, yet 
I, desirous to appear, have done my utmost endeavour to hire a horse, 
but cannot procure one at present. I, being at present destitute have 
endeavored to purchase, but at present cannot 'attaine it, but I shall relate 
the truth of the case, as my answer would be to ye honored court, and 
more cannot be proved, nor so much. On a rainy morning, there came 
to my house, Edward Wharton and three men more ; the said Wharton 
spoke to me, saying that they were traveling eastward and desired me to 
direct them in the way to Hampton and asked me "how far it was to Casco 
Bay. I never saw any of ye men afore except Wharton, neither did I 
require their names or what they were ; but by their carriage I thought 
they might be Quakers and told them so : and therefore desired them to 
passe on their way, saying to them I might possibly give offence in entertain- 
ing them, and as soone as the violence of the rain ceased (for it rained very 
hard), they went away and I never saw them since. The time that they 
stayed in the house was about three quarters of an hour ; but I can safely 
affirme it was not an houre. They spake not many words in the time, 
neither was I at leisure to talk with them ; for I came home wet to ye skin ; 
immediately afore they came to the house and I found my wife sick in bed. 
If this satisfie not the honored court I shall subject to their sentence. I 
have not willingly offended. I am ready to serve and obey you in the 
Lord. 27^ of y- 8~ 59 (1659).

Two of the men who accompanied Edward Wharton, were William 
Robinson a merchant of London, and Marmaduke Stephenson of Yorkshire, 
England, both of whom were hanged in Boston the 27th of October, 1659, 
for being Quakers. 

Notwithstanding Thomas Macy's letter of explanation he was fined 
thirty shillings, and ordered to be admonished by the governor. He paid 
the fine, accepted the admonition from the governor, but resolved that that 
should be the last Tradition has passed down to the present generation 



22 MACY GENEALOGY. 

a very thrilling story of his abandoniDg his lands and property and fleeing 
with his wife and children in an open boat Records and the character 
of the man lead us to a diflferent conclusion. He with nine others purchased 
the island of Nantucket, as early as February, 1659, though the deed does not 
appear to have been signed until July the same year. He did not commit 
the heinous crime of sheltering beneath his roof from the inclemency 
of the weather four persecuted Quakers until July or August of that year, 
therefore, the sentence of the court could not have been the first cause 
of his going to Nantucket, further why should he flee from the payment 
of thirty shillings and leave his property behind him, consisting of lands, 
cattle and household furniture, worth many times that amount. What 
other cause could he have had for leaving suddenly ; he was no coward, 
he had braved the dangers of the ocean and come to a country almost 
uninhabited except by Indians; he had publicly declared his reli^ous 
convictions in direct opposition to the Puritan clergy, and to the mandates 
of the court Such a man certainly knew no fear. jNo, he left because 
he could not in justice to the dictates of his own conscience longer submit 
to the tyranny of the clergy and those in authority^ Having in conjunction 
with others purchased the island he thought tfiis a good opportunity to 
carry out his long contemplated plans. So, in September or October he 
embarked in a small sail boat with his wife and children and such 
household furniture as he could conveniently carry, and in company with 
Isaac Coleman and Edward Starbuck set sail for Nantucket. They crossed 
Boston Bay, rounded Cape Cod and thence sailed direct for the island. 
"When crossing the sound from Cape Cod to the island quite a storm 
arose and his wife being rather superstitious advised him to return to the 
main land, fearing they could not live through such a sea in such a frail 
vessel. ' He assured 'her that he had perfect faith, and desired her not to 
despair. When shortly after she entreated him again to turn back he 
replied to. her "Woman, go below and seek thy God. I fear not the 
witches on earth or the devils in hell." They reached the island without 
accident. Thus Thomas Macy was driven from Massachusetts by the 
same persecuting spirit that drove the pilgrims from the shores of England. 
"With unknown fear, with undaunted courage, and with an unfaltering trust 
in the guiding and guarding hand of Heaven, did he brave all dangers to 
secure a free altar and a safe home, and thereby transmit to his descendants 
the seeds of true liberty and pure religion. 



MACY GENEALOGY. 23 

They found upon the island about 3,000 Indians who received them 
kindly, and assisted them in preparing for winter quarters. Thomas Macy 
and family were the first white settlers of the island of Nantucket. In 
the winter of 1659, they were joined by one Dagget who came to the 
island from Martha's Vineyard for the purpose of hunting. What a picture 
have we now before us : this devout man with his wife and five little 
children, the oldest thirteen years and the youngest four years of age, with 
Isaac Coleman and Edward Starbuck, the former a mere lad of twelve years, 
living upon this island through the severity of a winter, surrounded by 
native Indians of whose character and language they were entirely ignorant. 
The natives seeing their mission was peace rendered them every assistance 
they could, and supplied them with fish and game, which were abundant 
about and on the island. In the spring of 1660, Edward Starbuck returned 
to Salisbury and fully reported their comfortable situation. During that 
year some eight or ten families removed fi*om Salisbury to the Island, and 
fix>m that time the number of civilized inhabitants continued to increase. 
Thomas Macy was the first recorder appointed for Nantucket and the first 
book of records now in the recorder's office on the island was probably 
written by himself or rather part of it. We again have recourse to the 
work of Mr. Hough for many little incidents in the management and local 4'^ \ 

affiairs of the inhabitants : ' i /f^

Petition of Peter Foulger about Proceedings at the General Court of 

Martinis Vineyardy 1676. 

[New York Colonial MSS., xzir, Secretary*! Office.] 

To the Right Hon : Major Andros, Gouernour at New Yorke', 

The humble Petition of Peter Ffoulger, now Prifoner at Shearburn upon the 
Ifland of Nantuckett, vpon the real Acount of his Royal Highnefs Intereft, (at 
leaft in his Judgment,) is as followeth : 

May it pleafe your Honor to vnderftand, that the Occafion of this my Petition 
is to acquaint your Honour with that new Trouble that my felfe an others meete 
now withal in this Place, iFor indeed I cannot wel informe your Hon' how it is in 
my own Cafe, vnles I fpeak fomething of the generall Cafe. So it was that when 
the Date of Mr. Tho : Macy's Comiffion was out, he called the Town together, 
and being met he told them that his Comiffion was out, yet he did allert it, and 
defired to know of the Town who would ftand by him in it. Som of vs (aid it 
was not the Town's Bufinefs to fpeake of his Comiffion, but we did conceiue that 
your Hon: had left a (afe and plain Way for the carrying on of Gouernment til 
further Order. Others fayd that his Commiffion was in Force til further Order, 
though not expreft and argued it out from former Inftru<5bions, and begun to be 
very fierce. We thought their End to be bad, and therefore (ayd littel or nothing 
more, (they being the greater Part,) but were refoulued to be quite, looking vpon it 
as an evil Time. After this there cam hither from Pufcattaway Mr. Peter Coffin 
and fome others, to ftay here this Winter for fear of the Indians. Then another 
Meeting was called to chufe new Affiftants to Mr. Macy. We knowing that we 
(hould be out voted, fat ftil and voted not. The firft Man that was chofen was 
Peter Coffin ; Stephen HuiTey was the Man that carried on the Defigne in fuch a 
rude Manner as this : — Com Sirs, lets chufe Peter Coffin, he will be here but a 
Month or two, and then we (hall have tenn Pound Fine of him. A Man that is 
in Commiffion in Bay and is gone thither agayn. A Man that brought hither an 
evil Report of your Hon : from the Bay, which fome of vs did publiquely proteft 
againft, and how he hath carried it fince chofen I (hall leave at prefent. But if 
your Hon : did know the Man as well as God know him, or but halfe fo well as 



MACY GENEALOGY. 33 

fome of vs know him, I do verily belieue that your Hon : would diflike his Ruling 
here as much as any of vs. In the like vnciuil Manner, they chofe two young 
Men more, Stephen Huffey calling upon them to corne^ fuch a Man, and fuch a 
Man, becaufe he had Cattle at theire Houfes to Winter, and if they did not chufe 
them he was afraid they would not winter them wel. The fayd Stephen bringing* 
his Corn which betoken Choice open in his Hand, and called vpon others to Corn 
this Man and that Man ; Such a Meeting as I never was at for fuch a Work. 
And being Clarke and thereby to fe to the Votes, I cald vpon them to be Ciuil, 
and not to make a Maygame of chufeing Men for fuch Imployment, and fom 
others fpake after the fame Maner, but as they began fo they ended. 

Now that you' Hon : may vnderftand how they cam to be the greater p*, it was 
by Mr. Macy his forceing about and his Family, a Man who was as much for the 
Dukes Intereft when we were with you' Hon : at New Yorke as any of vs, but 
now for diuers by Ends it is otherwife. I am forry to trouble you' Hon': to Read 
fo much of this durty Stuff, but that my own Bufines depends fo much vpon it as 
that I fear you' Hon : wil not vnderftand it, without fom Intimation of it. December 
26, was our Quarter Court, and I being Clarke was at a Strait what to do, becaufe 
I did queftion as Things were, whether they would keepe a Legal Court or no, 
though I fayd nothing but was Refolued to be quiet, and to that End went to the 
Court and carried the Court Booke with me, thinking thereby to while away Time 
with as much Peace as could be til either you' Hon : cam to vs or fom further 

order ; but being there prefently faw that I was in for if I did not Write 

what they would, Peter CofEn told me they would prefently chufe a new Clarke. 
I faw then that the Booke was that which they aymed at, I did as wel as I could 

at that Time, and did think that I would condder better of my next (ince 

that they haue kept many private Courts that they gaue me no Notice of: Ffeb. 

10^, cam the Conftable to the . . . . ke and al other Records of that 

Nature as you' Hon' may fee by this inclofed Paper* which is Mr. Macy's own 

' Alluding to the ancient custom of balloting with com and beans ; the former for, the latter 
against the candidate. 

' Tis the Order of the Court that the Conftable be fent to Peter Ffoulger for the Court Booke, and all the 
Records of that Nature, and this is to impower the Conftable herein, and to bring them to y« Court forthwith, 
and Peter Ffoulger is hereby required to deliver them Pr me

Hand, Reading the Paper and conlidering that they did not want me but the Booke, 
I returned them this Anfwer in Writing, that the Booke wis put into my Hands 
by the General! Court, and til the fame Power, or a higher, did cal for it from me 
I (hould Indeauour to keepe it, but if they would haue any Coppye out of it they 
might at any Time haue them. Immediately the Conftable cam with a Summons, 
and hauing no Time to confider further of it I gave him no Anfwer, but went to 
Cap^ Gardners Houfe where prefently he cam with a Speciall Warrant. I would 
haue fent your Hon: the Coppy of them but I cannot git them though often 
defyred them of the Conft ; The fayd Conftable by the Help of other men, haled 
and draged me out of the Cap^ Houfe and caried me to the Place where they were 
met. I fpake not a Word to the Conftable, nor refifted him in the Icaft. When 
I cam at the Houfe I (aw none of the Court, but the Conftable told me that the 
Court was adjourned til Wednefday next and that I was committed into his Hands 
and muft giue Bond to appeare then. 

Feb. 19^, I cam before them and carried myfelfe every way as ciuilly as I 
could, only I fpake never a Word, for I was fully perfuaded that if I (pake any 
thing at al, they would turn it againft me. I remembered alfo the old Saying that 
of nothing comes nothing. 

But it feemcs my Silence did helpe to bring forth this Sentence, of which you' 
Hon : hath here a Coppy.^ 

After my Sentence, the Conftable called for twenty Pound Bond, or to Priibn I 
muft go prefently, when they al know that I am a poore old Man, and not able to 
maintayne my Family. All my Eftate, if my Debts were payd, will not amount 
to halfe fo much, and as for making vfe of Friends, they al know that I haue more 
Need of any Helpe that way for the Supply of my Family. For want of Bond 
away the Conftable carried me to Prifon, a Place where never any £nglifti-man 
was put, and where the Neighbors Hoge had layd but the Night before, and in a 
bitter cold Froft and deepe Snow. They had onely thrown out moft of the Durt, 

* At a Court of Ajurment held in the Townc of Sherbarne, 14*** Feburary, 1676 Pctter Foulger, Inditted for 
Contempt of his Magis Athority, in not appearing before the Court according to fumons ferued on him and being 
Aprehended by Specall Warrant being braoft to the Court to Anfwer for his Contentious Carage, And being 
demanded why he did (o zSt gaue no Anfwer : Th*o the Court waited on hem a While and vrged him to fpeak. 
The Sentence of the Court is to Remite the Caufe to the Court of Aftze at New York as the law deredh and 
to giue twenty Pound Bond for his appearance, and to abide the Order of the Court and to ftand committed ti*l 
Bond be given.

Hoge Dung and Snow. The Reft the Conftable told me I might ly vpon if I 
would, that is vpon the Boards in that Cafe, and without Viftuals or Fire. Indeed 
I perfwaded him to fetch a little Hay, and he did fo, and fome Friend did prefently 
bring in Beding and Victuals. 

But as for Mr. Macy and the Reft of our new young Magiftrates, you"^ Hon : 
may fee how far theire Pitty did extend to a poore old Man, aged 60 Yeares. At 
the Prefcnt I haue fome Leaue from my keeper to be fometimes at my own Houfe, 
but how long that will hold I know not. I haue informed you"^ Hon : truely what 
my Condition is, and my humble Petition is, that your Hon: wloud be pleafed fo 
to confider of it, as to (hew fome Fauour towards your vnworthy Petitioner, and in 
your Wifdom to finde out fome Way for my Freedom, as alfo to ftop the Rage and 
Fury of thefe Men, Leaft others better then myfelfe be brought fuddenly to the 
fame Condition that I am in if not worfe, for the Mercy of fom of thefe Men is 
Cruelty itfelfe, And in Truth I was not the Man that they moft aymed at. Others 
(hould haue bin in Prifon at the fame Time, but that they found more heuier Work 
of it, then they thought of, for it began prefently to fet a fire the whole Ifland, for 
I hauing liued 30 Yeares vpon this Ifland and the Vineyard, was fo wel known, 
and fo wel Beloued of Englifh and Indians, (whether deferued or not) that the 
Indians inquired what the Caufe was of my Imprifbnment, And though both Ptys 
was unwilling to tel them, yet being before fo vnfatisfied with the Orders or Laws 
that thefe new Magiftrates had made for them. They p'fently found fo much that 
they began to fpeak high in the Cafe for thefe and the like Reafons as I fuppofe 
our new Court though they fpeak great Words, yet at Prefent they are not fo full 
of A ft ion, and I do moft humbly intreat you' Hon : to confider of the Condition of 
the poore Indians in this Refpeft, for they haue fuch Caufe to fpeak againft their 
Aftings, that we haue no way to quite them, but to perfuade them to be ftil til 
your Hon: come or fome Order from you, which we tel them we do belieue wil 
ccrtaynely be. I haue bin Interpreter here from the Beginning of the Plantation, 
when no Englifliman but* myfelfe could fpeake fcarfe a Word of Indian, at which 
Time I am fure fome of thefe Men that deal thus with me now, had felt Arrows in

between them and made Peace. And I haue euer fince bin able by the Helpe of 
fome antient Men, to keep Peace vpon the Ifland, but now I am not able to 
anfwer them no other than as aforefayed, for they (ay there is now young Men in 
Place they do not vnderftand that Way. They cannot belieue that young Men, 
efpecially fuch Men, can vnderftand Things like old Men, and they are always in 
J)oubt whether they haue Juftice or no. They fay further, that there is a Bofton

Man lits in Place by Mr. Macy, and he Blind him fo that he canot fe the Right 
Path, and they (ay that they do not vnderftand what he hath to do to Judge their 
Cafes. Thefe and fuch like Words I and others haue from them, and I doe verily 
belieue they are theire own Words, that no Englifh body euer put any fuch Things 
into their Minds. 

We haue had Peace hitherto when our Neighbours but Juft ouer the Water, 
haue loft fo many of ther dear Relations in bloody Wars, I hope your Hon : wil in 
your Wifdome finde out fom Way for vs that we may be able to Anfwer thefe 
Queris of the Indians, that Peace may continue ftil between vs as heretofore. I 
moft humbly intreat your Hon to pardon my Bouldnefs in Writing fo much vpon 
this SubjeA, for I haue fo much to doe with the Indians for fo many Years that I 
cannot forbear Writing, Though I cannot Write but with Tears, confidering the 
Mifery that they and we are like to come to. If you' Hon : put not a Stop to 
thefe violent Motions, I verily belieue it were better for vs and the Indians alfo, 
that we had no Liberty at al (at leaft til we could vfe it better,) then thus to abufe it. 

I hear now that our new Court intend to defyer leaue of you' Hon: that my 
Caufe may be tried at the Generall Court. But I humbly intreat you Hon: to 
preuent it. I (hall fit down fully fatisfied by your Honours Sentence, or by the 
Sentence of the Dukes reall Friend whom your Hon : (hall appoint. It is known 
that I haue euer bin for the Duke's Intereft if they had don fo too, we had not bin 
fo many Yeares without a Generall Court, and what kind of Court they are like to 
keepe, and what Juftice I am like to haue from them (as Things go now) your 
Hon : I doubt not wil eafily conceiue ; and now, Right Honourable, if I and my 
Friends might injoy fo much Happinefs as to fo but a Line or two of your Honour's 
Pleafure, it would affuredly bring much Joy to your unworthy Petitioner ; Yea, it 
would certainly reuiue our Spirits in this Time of Trouble, til fom of vs might 
haue that happy Opertunity to appear before your Hon : againe. And thus humbly

May it pleafe yo' Hon', where yo' Goodneffe have bin fuch as to fend fo after us 
to know how tis with us in thefe troublefome and dangerous Times, wherein o' 
Neighbours have fo greatly fufFered and we as yet through the Goodneffe of God 
are free, thefe are to returnc Thanks the fame of yo"^ Vigilancy we doubt not, hath 
conduced to o' Peace thefe rude Lines are to give yo' Hon"^ an Accompt how Things 
are and haue bin with us : a confiderable Company of Indians haue formerly owned 
themfelues Philip's Men, but fince the Wars began they haue feemingly we hope 
declared themfelves againft him. We haue carried oTelues towards them manifefting 
no Diftruft and Things haue bin orderly carried among them : onely we haue 

heard now and then a Word from which we haue not liked but haue 

ouerlooked the fame. And I doubt not but we may enjoy Peace (if o' Sins hinder 
not) fo long as we can keep ftrong Liquor from them. Yo' Hon' may vnderftand 
that fome that dwell elfewhere haue fome Yeares paft fent Goods to trade with the 
Indians vpon the accompt of Fifhing, and otherwife and great quantities of ftrong 
Liquor haue bin fent and notwith ftanding all orders and care about it to p'hibit it 
hath bin one way or other difpofed to the Indians which hath occafioned great 
Abufe and Diforder, but fince the Warrs began they haue not had much : the laft 



38 MACY GENEALOGY. 

Fall the Court tooke into their PoiTefEon all on the Ifland and difpofed of it by 
fmall quantities as the Owners and the Englifh Neighbours had need, and becaufe 
of the late Scarcity little hath lately come : 

The agent here that carried on the Trade for the Gentlemen hath bargained 
with the Indians to giue each Man a dram before they go out to fifhing in the 
Morning, but vnder that p'tence much Abufe have bin, but refpeding that p'fent 
Voyage a fmall Quantity came, about i6 Gallons which was carried to y* Indians. 
It fo came to paflfe that a Sloop came to my Hono** Coufin Mr. Mayhew from the 
Hon"* Councell, and Mr. Mayhew fent to me the Order that prohibited ftroi^ 
Drink being carried to any Indian Plantation, which Order came to my Hand the 
6 day of the Week, and I prefently went to y' Houfe of him that had carried the 
Liquor afore mentioned to y' Indians, and carryed the Order with me but finding 
him not at Home left a Warrant at the Houfe requireing him in his Ma*^" to fetch 
away the Liquor carried to y' Indians : but flighted and not at all obeyed, but the 
Liquor fpent there as I vnderftand. The Monday following I caufed the Order to 
be read in the Town Meeting, which fome greatly difliked, as I vnderftood. 

My humble Requeft is, a Word or two from yo' Hon : about it. Sir, concerning 
the Peace we hitherto enjoy, I cannot imagine it could haue bin if ftrong Liquor 
had bin among the Indians, as formerly : for my owne y^ I haue bin to y* vtmoft an 
oppofed of the Trade thefe 38 Yeares, and I verily belieue (refpefting the Indians) 
tis the only Ground of the miferable p'fent Ruine to both Nations ; for tis that hath 
kept them from Civility, they haue bin by the drunken Trade kept all the while 
like wild Beares and Wolves in the Wilderneflfe ; concerning my vnderftanding in 
the Matter I haue now fent to Gouerno^ Leueret, y' which I hope may come to 
publicke View &c. But refpefting the p'fent Times and State of Things, I humbly 
entreat if in yo' Wifdom you (hall fee meet to make a ftrift Law or Order refpeding 
o' Ifland to p'hibit any VeflTel whatfoever that Ihall come in y* Harbor to fell or 
giue any ftrong Drink more or lefs to any Indian vnder a penalty, and to Command 
or Order the Gouernor here to fearch all VeflTels for ftrong Drink and either to 
caufe the Mafter or Merchant to carry away or take into cuftody fo much as they 
iudge may be needful! for the moderate ufe of the Englifli here, or for Indians in 
cafe of diftreflfe, &c. and according to ye difcreiHon of the Court to put it in the 
Hands of fome Man or Men that may be judged faithfull by fmall quantities, difpofe 
as be needed, for tho y* Traders it may be do not difpofe of much to y* Indians, yet 
many of the Inhabitants do frequently purchafe it p'tending for their own vfe and fel 
it to y* Indians. An Order from yo^ Hon^ will be of greater Force than any we 
can make tho left too Liberty herein : and whereas in yo^ Letter to Mr Mayhew

you giue Liberty to difpofe of Powder to trufty Indians for their neceffary vfe, we 
judge it were better for us wholly to p'hibit, for tho fome here we apprehend may

Right Honorabell: 

May it Pleafe your Honor. 

Duty and Love Commands ; nefefity conflraynes : and your Honours Wifdome 
and Care of us embouldens mee once more to petifhtion and enforme your Honor 
of our prefent State : Firfl, that there hath bene an unhapy diferance Amongfl us ; 
beyond before my coming to this Hand \ and fince not decrefed, is to Evident : the 
Grounds whereof I belieue your Honor was neuer yet Rightly Enformed of, and 
at my Lafl being before your Honor, could not then well do it by Reafon of your 
Honors Expedition for Delaware ; but I did then hope at your Honors Returne, 
to haue gone through al Things as it then was: but the unhapy Indian War 
unexpe^edly breaking out: hath hitherto hindred, that Maters are now groune 
much worfe than before : 

If I may, therefor. Humbly Entreat your Honors Patience a litell, I fhall as 
Breafly as pofTabelly I can, giue your Honor the (horte of it, and leaue it more fully 
to be don when I (hall find the Hapines againe to fland before your Honor : And 
now Right Honorabell, that there was fum kind of Purchafe of Mr. Mayhew by 
fum Gentlemen liueing in the Mafachufets, of Liberty to plant vpon this Hand ; 
and after that, the Purchas of fum Land of the Indian Right fuch as it was \ and 
a part of theas Purchafers came to Inhabit, Taking in fum other Inhabitance with 
them on Termes as agreed one : this is .... c Leave : But his Royall Highnefs 
haueing obtained his Royall Grant from his Royall Majefly together with all other 
Titells being Refigned over to him and Gcnerall Nickels rightfully Taking PofTcflion 



40 MACY GENEALOGY. 

for his Ryall Highnes, and Gouerning hear for a Time, as your Honor well know 
did fend a verball Meiage to the Inhabitance, and all Perfons conferned on this 
Hands, to apear before him to make out there Claymes, and Refeue ther Land by 
Athority of his Ryall Highnefs as the Law direAs, which Mefage was (o hit 
flighted as to take no noties of it. 

After this, the Right Honorabell Cor" Loflas^ coming Gouernor; did again (end 
out his Warrant for Perfons here Concerned to apear before him within fouer 
Months to make out ther Claymes : and to Refeue their Land by Athority from 
his Ryall Highnes or Elce all ther Claymes (hould be ever after voyd to all Intents. 
The Copy of this was fent to thofe of the Purchafers yet in the Mafetufets : and 
the Inhabitance haear wayted on them about one Yeare after the Time giuen them 
before they mad ther Apearance Acording to Warrant : Refeiving no Anfwer nether 
was ther euer aney Anfwer to this day or aney Apearance ; for them to lay our 
Maiatufetts Mafters as will abondantly Apeare. Now heare comes in the Ground 
of all our diferance, that feuerall of the Inhabitance joyned with the Purchafers, 
afirming that this ther ould Titell as Good, and that they need not to take the 
Titell from his Ryall Highnefs as the Law direfts, and that it was ther one before. 
On the managing of this Difpute hath many Things fallen on as fum of us judge 
derigatory to his Ryall Majefly's Athority, and his Ryall Highnes Propriety and 
Gourment, which will beter Apear by the Evidences in ... . fefone. This Things 
hath wrougt fuch Refiflance in Agit'tion that we are now Gone jufl to Diflracktion . . 
in that of the Gouerment that is amongfl us. 

Mr. Macy and his Relations though formerly aferted his Ryall Highnes Propriety 
and Intrefl now joyne with that Party as we judge opofe it, and fum Perfons now 
came out of the Bay of thofe .... Purchefers as Sojouners for a Time by Refon of 
the Indian War, fo they now haueing the biger Party hear, would all Things after 
ther Plefuer, or at Left Endeuer it, but which is worfe than all this, Peter Cofcn 
and James, Soyourners for a Time, haueing ther Mouths full of thofe vile Reports,

againfl the Englifh, aleging it publeckly, as a Ground why we might not folow your 
Honors Order according to the Law, in helping the Indians as the Law derids ; 
and this thay prefl with vyolence in words. I gaue them this Anfwer after fum 
others, that I did beleue that it would neuer apear that your vnfpoted Honor had

and difpofed of after ther Plefuer, for what Refon I profes I know not, but becaufe 
it was myne. (This was done cheafly by Mr. Macy and his Sone Worth.) I 
haue deftered the Conftabell to giue me a Copy of the Warrant by which he took 
it from mee, but I cannot obtaine it, and from Mr. Macy cane haue no Anfwer. 

But of Releuef in its fefbn ; but for the Prefent haue expected dayly the 

Prifon to be my Portion, I being Highly Guilty of that great Sine of Aferting his 
Ryall Highnels Juftes .... and Propriety according to Law, as fum count it, but 
I hope not all. 

Amongft the Indians, there has ben Great Difturbence of late, by Refon of

MACY GENEALOGY. 55 

BBs widow Sarah Macy (Sarah Hopcott) died in 1706 at the advanced age 
of ninety-four years. She came with him from Chilmark, England. 



The following ballad was written by the poet, J. G. Whittier, not many 
years since, and may be found interesting to some of my readers who can 
contrast the beautifid embellishments of the poet with historical facts : 

The goodman sat beside his door 

One sultry afternoon, 
With his young wife singing at his side 

A quaint and goodly tune. 

A glimmer of heat was in the air, 

The dark green woods were still; 
And the skirts of a heavy thunder cloud 

Hung over the western hill. 

Black, thick and vast arose that cloud 

Above the wilderness, 
As some dark world from upper air 

Were stooping over this. 

At times the solemn thunder pealed. 

And all was still again, 
Save a low murmur in the air 

Of coming wind and rain. 

Just as the first big rain drop fell, 

A weary stranger oame. 
And stood before the farmer's door. 

With travel soiled, and lame. 

Sad seemed he, yet sustaining hope 

Was in his quiet glance, 
And peace, like autumn's moonlight clothed 

His tranquil countenance. 



56 MACY GENEALOGY. 

A look, like this his master wore 

In Pilate's council liall: 
It told of wrongs, but of a love 

Meekly forgiving all. 

'* Friend I wilt thou give me shelter here?'' 
The stranger meekly said; 

And leaning on his oaken sta£F, 
The goodman's features read. 

"My life is hunted — evil men 
Are following in my track; 

The traces of the torture's whip 
Are on my aged back. 

And much I fear 'twill peril thee 

Within thy doors to take 
A hunted seeker of the truth, 

Oppressed for conscience sake." 



"O," kindly spoke the goodman's wife, 
" Come in, old man ! " quoth she, 

" We will not leave thee to the storm, 
Whoever thou mayst be." 

Then came the aged wanderer in. 

And silent sat him down; 
While all within grew- dark as night 

Beneath the storm cloud's frown. 

But while the sudden lightning's blaze 

Filled every cottage nook, 
And with the jarring thunder roll 

The loosened casements shook. 

A heavy tramp of horses' feet 
Came sounding up. the lane. 

And half a score of horse or more 
Came plunging through the rain. 




MACY GENEALOGY. 57 

"Now, goodman Macy, ope thy door, 

We would not be housebreakers ; 
A rueful deed thou'st done this day. 

In harboring banished quakers." 

Out looked the cautious goodman then, 

With mucli of fear and awe, 
For there with broad wig drenched with rain. 

The parish priest he saw. 

"Open thy door, thou wicked man. 

And let thy pastor in. 
And give God thanks, if forty stripes 

Repay thy deadly sin." 

"What seek ye?'' quoth the kind goodman, 

"The stranger is my guest; 
He is worn with toil and grievous wrong — 

Pray let the old man rest.'' 

« 

"Now, out upon thee, canting knave!" 

And strong hands shook the door, 
"Believe me, Macy," quoth the priest, 
. "Thou'lt rue thy conduct sore." 

Then kindled Macy's eye of fire, 
"No priest, who walks the earth. 
Shall pluck away the stranger guest 
Made welcome to my hearth." 

Down from his cottage wall he caught. 

The match -lock hotly tried 
At Preston-pans and Marston-moor 

By fiery Ireton's side; 

Where puritan and cavalier. 

With shout and psalm contended; 
And Rupert's oath, and Cromweirs prayer 

With battle thunder blended.

Up rose the ancient stranger then; 

"My spirit is not free 
To bring the wrath and violence 

Of evil men on thee; 

And for thyself I pray forbear 
Bethink thee of thy Lord, 

Who healed again the smitten ear, 
And sheathed his follower's sword. 

I go, as to the slaughter led; 

Friends of the poor, farewell," 
Beneath his hand the oaken door. 

Back on its hinges fell. 

"Come forth, old grey beard, yea and nay," 
The reckless scoffers cried. 

As to a horseman's saddle bow 
The old man's arms were tied. 

And of his bondage hard and long 

In Boston's crowded jail, 
Where suffering woman's prayer was heard 

With sickening childhood's wail. 

It suits not with our tale to tell. 
Those scenes have passed away — 

Let the dim shadows of the past 
Brood o'er that evil day. 

"Ho, sheriff!" quoth the ardent priest, 
"Take goodman Macy too; 

The sin of this day's heresy 
His back or purse shall rue." 

And priest and sheriff both together 

Upon hb threshold stood. 
When Macy, through another door 

Sprang out into the wood. 




MACY GENEALOGY. 59 

" Now, good wife, as thou lovest me, haste," 

She caught his manly arm : 
Behind, the parson urged pursuit, 

With outcry and alarm. 

Ho! speed the Macys, neck or nought, 

The river's course was near : 
The plashing on its pebhied shore 

Was music to their ear. 

A gray rock, tasseled o'er with birch, 

Above the waters hung. 
And at its base with every wave 

A small light wherry swung. 

A leap — they gain the boat — and there 

The goodman wields his oar; 
"111 luck betide them all," he cried — 

"The laggards upon shore." 

Down through the crashing underwood 

The burly sheriff came : 
"Stand, goodman Macy — yield thyself; 

Yield, in the king's own name." 

"Now out upon thy hangman's face!" 

Bold Macy answered then, 
"Whip women on the village green. 

But meddle not with men." 

The priest came panting to the shore, 

His grave cocked hat was gone; 
Behind him, like some owl's nest, hung 

His wig upon a thorn. 

"Come back — come back," the parson cried, 

"The church's curse beware." 
" Curse an' thou wilt," said ,Macy, " but 

Thy blessing prithee spare."

" Vile scoffer," cried the baffled priest, 

"Thou'lt yet the gallows see. 
*^ Who's born to be hanged, will not be drowned, 

Quoth Macy merrily; 

*' And so, sir sheriff and priest, good bye ! " 

He bent him to his oar, 
And the small boat glided quietly 

From the twain upon the shore. 

Now in the west, the heavy clouds 

Scattered and fell asunder, 
And feebler came the rush of rain. 

While fainter growled the thunder. 

And through the broken clouds the sun 

Looked out serene and warm. 
Painting its holy symbol-light 

Upon the passing storm. 

Oh, beautiful ! that rainbow span. 

O'er dim Crane neck was bended; 
One bright foot touched the eastern hills 

And one with ocean blended. 

By green Pentucket's southern slope 

The small boat glided fast, 
The watchers at the block house saw 

The strangers as they passed. 

That night a stalwart garrison 

Sat shaking in their shoes, 
To hear the dip of Indian oars — 

The glide of birch canoes. 

They passed the bhiff^ of Amesbury, 

And saw the sunshine glow 
Upon the powwow's winding stream. 

And on the hills of Po. 



MACY GENEALOGY. Ql 

The fisher-wives of Salisbury 

(The men were all away) 
Looked out to see the stranger oar 

Upon their waters play. 

Deer island's rocks and fir trees threw 

Their sunset shadows o'er them, 
And Newbur/s spire and weathercock, 

Peered o'er the pines before them. 

Around the black rocks on their left 

The marsh lay broad and green, 
And on their right with dwarf shrubs crowned, 

Plum island's hills were seen. 

With skillful hand and wary eye, 

The harbor bar was crossed; 
A plaything of the restless wave. 

The boat on ocean tossed. 

The glory of the sunset heaven 

On land and water lay, 
On the steep hills of Agawam, 

On cape, and bins' and bay. 

They passed the gray rocks of Cape Ann 

And Gloucester harbor bar; 
The watch-fire of the garrison 

Shone like a setting star. 

How brightly broke the morning. 

On Massachusetts bay ! 
Blue wave and bright green island. 

Rejoicing in the day. 

On passed the bark in safety, 

Round isle and headland steep; 
No tempest broke above them. 

No fog-cloud veiled the deep.

• 

Far round the bleak and stormy cape, 
The venturous Macy passed, 

And on Nanfucket's naked isle 
Drew up his boat at last. 

And how in log-built cabin, 
They braved the rough sea-weather; 

And there, in peace and quietness, 
Went down life's vale together; 

How others drew around them, 
And how their fishing sped, 

Until to every wind of heaven, 
Nantucket's sails were spread; 

How pale want alternated 
With plenty's golden smile; 

Behold, is it not written 
In the annals of the' isle ? 

And yet that isle remaineth 
A refuge of the free. 

As when true hearted Macy 
Beheld it from the sea. 

Free as the winds that winnow 
Her shrubless hills of sand; 

Free as the waves that batter 
Along her yielding land. 

Than hers, at duty's summons, 
No loftier spirit stirs : 

Nor falls on human sufferings 
A readier tear than hers. 

God bless the sea-beat island ! 

And grant for evermore, 
That charity and freedom dwell, 

As now, upon her shore ! 



MACY GENEALOGY. 63 

For the information of those members of the family who have never visited 
the island of Nantucket, a very brief sketch of it may be found interesting. 
It has ah*eady been shown how the island was under the jurisdiction of 
New York, where it remained until the third year of the reign of William 
and Mary (1691) when it was transferred to the colony of Massachusetts bay. 
It was first discovered by Captain Bartholomew Gosnold, an Englishman, 
whilst on a voyage from England to Virginia in 1602. The island is shaped 
somewhat like a horse-shoe or half-moon, is about fifteen miles long east 
and west, with an average breadth of about four miles, containing 29,380 
acres or about fifty square miles. 

It is for the most part level and sandy, though some parts, inclined to a 
little elevation, are capable of a high state of cultivation, producing Indian 
corn, rye, oats, barley, etc. Medicinal herbs and roots were abundant on 
the island, and were used by the natives, and by the English after settling 
there. Trees do not flourish, seldom attaining any height, owing to the pre- 
valence of high winds and the length and severity of the winters. The town 
was called Sherborne according to written orders of Gov. Lovelace of New 
York, dated « Aprill y* 18*** 1673," and recorded at Albany, N. Y., in the secre- 
tary's office, in Book of Deeds 111, page 85. But being the only town upon 
the island the distinctive appellation was lost in the general name of Nan- 
tucket, which name it retained until confirmed in 1795. As early as 1672, 
the inhabitants commenced whale fishing and pursued it until they obtained 
the lead as the principal mart in the world for the products of the whale fish- 
eries, which position they retained until within the present century. In 1715, 
they had six sloops employed in fishing in the neighborhood of the island, 
whilst in 1775 they had one-hundred and fifty vessels from ninety to one-hun- 
dred and fifty tons, hunting the whale through the Atlantic ocean as far north 
as the island of Disco off Greenland, and as far south as off the coast of Bra- 
zil. Whilst many were employed in whale fishing, others were engaged in 
transporting the products of the whale to other markets and exchanging them 
for provisions and such articles as were required for fitting out whale ships, as 
well as for those who remained at home on the island. In winter, when 
many of the ships were laid up, the officers and men would be occupied at 
some trade, as it was considered just as essential that a boy should be taught 
a trade as that he should be taught spelling and arithmetic, and they became 
adepts in handling all kinds of mechanical implements. The whale ships 
were generally owned in shares, a blacksmith, a cooper, a block and pump 



64 MACY GENE.U,OGY. 

mak6r, a painter, etc., etc., each taking a share, and each doing his share of 
the work to keep the ship in repair. "WTien on a voyage the men did not 
receive wages, but each one took a share in the ultimate result of the voyage, 
a method which naturally caused each one to strive to his utmost for success, 
and it as well inculcated habits of industry, economy and fidelity. Such 
confidence and security did this course of life engender, that locks on firont 
doors were almost unknown, and when any did have them, the keys were as 
often on the outside as in. It being understood if the key wa? on the outside 
the family were not at home. The women in the meantime doing their fiill 
share toward the general prosperity of the islanders. They were industrious, 
economical, neat and frugal housekeepers. 

They attended entirely to the education and training of the young, had fiill 
charge of all household aftairs, and acted as nurse and physician to the sick. 
The stj'le of living was primitive in the extreme ; they lived as a band of 
brothers and sisters; industry and frugality were virtues, and idleness was a 
vice. For their cordial hospitality to strangers they were always noted. 
Upon the arrival of a stranger or visitor from the mainland every larder was 
opened, every horse and calash (a two wheeled cart without springs in which 
the riders either stood up or sat in chairs, holding on to ropes fitstened to the 
sides) tendered, and every civility shown, without any ostentation, but with a 
free and willing heart. 

The streets of the town, or more properly speaking roads, for they were not 
paved, are exceedingly crooked and narrow, and branch out from each other 
in all directions, every man being at liberty to place his house according to 
his own fancy, but generally placing the front to correspond with some par- 
ticular point of the compass rather than to conform to any direction of the 
street. The streets were not named until the imposition of the direct tax, 
under President Adams, being known by the name of some one of the prin- 
cipal residents, such as William Coffin street, Matthew Starbuck street, etc., 
etc., but now they are known as Pearl, Federal, Washington streets, etc., 
The houses were built of wood, two stories high, but very low ceilings, with a 
look out on top to observe what ships had arrived, and many with vanes, 
to tell whether the wind was fair for the packet Every child could tell " which 
way the wind blows " and every old woman could talk " sea talk " as &miliarly 
as the captain of a whale ship. If her child did not behave she would 
" bring her to; " or she would " cruise about" to call on some of her " mess- 
mates," or she would order the horse " tackled up," see that you were properly 



MACY GENEALOGY. g5 

" rigged out," and tell you to get " under way," " make a harbor" at Siascon- 
flit, then " track about," and come home. A scant meal would be a " short 
allowance," and she would know a *' landlubber" by the " cut of his ^b." 
Such was Nantucket in its palmy days when their habiliments were home- 
spun, when they were respected for their very singularities, when their 
verbal promises to pay were more honestly and punctually met than many 
written ones of the present day. The islanders always set apart one day in 
the year as a grand boliday peculiar to themselves. About the middle of 
June, all the sheep on the island were driven into pens and sheared of their 
wool. This was a grand jubilee : booths were erected on the commons, 
schools vacated, business suspended and every one turned out to assist at the 
sheep shearing and the general jollification. These sheep were generally 
pastured on the commons which contained about 10,000 acres. Every person 
owning a " cows' common " was entitled to pasture eight sheep, a horse being 
considered equal to two cows. If any difficulty arose between any of the 
inhabitants, the disputants would arrange to meet in the evening at the house 
of one or the other, invite a few friends, state their grievances, and have 
their differences settled amicably by their friends. 

The revolution of 1776 almost completely broke up their business in whale 
fishing, and many taking, as they supposed, advantage of the portending clouds, 
removed from the island as early as 1771, and from that date to 1783 many 
fitmilies left, settling in many parts of the Union, Maine, New Bedford, Mass., 
on the banks of the Hudson river, N. Y., and at New Garden, N. C, 
whilst William Rotch took many with him to Dunkirk, France, to pursue 
the whaling business under the auspices of the French government. In 
a congressional report to congress by Thomas Jefferson, he reported the 
state of the whale fishery of Massachusetts, in 1775, estimated about as 
follows: 304 vessels employed, tonnage 27,840 tons, seamen employed 4,059, 
returning about 47,040 barrels of oil ; in which report, Nantucket stood ac- 
credited with 150 vessels, 15,075 tons, 2,025 seamen, and 30,000 barrels of oil. 
After the close of the war, the whaling business was revived ; but New Bedford 
had made such strenuous eftbrts to secure this branch of business that it 
ultimately resulted in the inhabitants of the island abandoning it and turning 
their attention to other pursuits. It has been a great nursery for seamen, and 
many of our present best sea captains received their first nautical knowledge 
from Nantucket. The wharves to which were once moored many a staunch 
whaling vessel, and upon which the sailors were discharging their hard

which he divided all his real estate amongst his sons, and to his daughters he 
bequeathed money only ; but after reflection he appears to have made a new

(f> 



Nantucket 5" 30* 1791 
Respected Friend John Macy 

Having understood that there had been some dissatisfaction with thee, 
relative to thy brother Seth Macy's disposition of his Estate, to the exclusion 
of thyself and brother's from a part therein, and since the coming of thy son 
in law Baizillai Qardner here, much conversation has been engrossed upon 
this subject, occasioning some concern and exercise to Friends minds, which 
induces us to write to thee at this time, not at the request of Wm. Macy, but 
from a feeling of duty, our minds being impressed with a Consideration 
higher than that of the Temporal interest of any man. To wit, the preserva- 
tion of our Christian Testimony, which we think would be much aflFected by an 
attempt made by any friend, to set aside, or make void what we are constantly 
recommending as a necessary duty to our member's, making of wills whilst 
in health, and also called upon four times a year for a true account of friends 
care in this respect. It therefore appears to us a matter of great concernment 
and incumbent upon all, who are considered as brethren in Religious fellow- 
ship to be exceeding cautious how they move in a matter of this kind. Now 
in regard to this will of thy brother Seth's we are free to remark, knowing that 
little circumstances are often magnified by distant representations, and things 
that are only mere suggestions, sometimes carry with them the appearance 
and induce a belief that they are facts, when an impartial and true examina- 
tion will prove them to be of no consequence. 

It has been suggested that thy brother was impaired and not in capacity 
to make a Will. Had there been any suspicion of this kind at any time 
toward the close of his life, his having given a considerable part of his 



MACY GENEALOGY. 77 

interest to one of his Nephews, was a circumstance that raised the curiosity 
of most men upon the Island, and whilst it was a topic of conversation, we 
are all well assured such a material defect would not have passed unnoticed 
by Friends. Among the many Remarks that a subject of this kind naturally 

produces His "Will was finished about eight months before his death, 

and we fully believe, that he was of a sound mind at the time he made it, 
to which the Witnesses thereto, before the probate court affirmed, and 
continued to this time unshaken in their opinions about it. 

From "William Macy's having considerable share in this Estate, surmises 
have arisen and insinuations spread, that he might have practised undue arts 
to prepossess his Uncle in his favor, but we have no reason to believe that he 
took any steps inconsistant with Truth and honesty. The attention paid 
being purely from a sense of Duty due from a Nephew to an aged Uncle, 
and we believe the Will was dictated by Seth, free from the influence or 
direction of any person whatever; and we have not the least cause to think 
but what it would stand the test, and be confirmed in any Court that it can 
properly be brought before. 

With desires that what we have here said may tend to thy satisfaction and 
reconcile thy mind in a state of resignation and content, we remain 
affectionately Thy well wishing Friends 

Richard Mitchell, 
William Hussey, 
Silvan us Worth.

The clock descended to his son Joseph (38), and from him to Paul Macy

1818, when he willed to his son Paul, who took possession of it in 1832, who 
shortly after gave it to his son Obed Macy, who has it at present at Troy,

been in the hands of a elockmaker but once, and still keeps excellent time. 
This clock really deserves a place in the Macy Genealogy and is almost 
entitled to a number.

Richard Macy (15) was but two years old when his father died, conse- 
quently through the early part of his life he was dependent upon his own 
resources to carve out his life's path as seemed best to him. He educated 
himself, and having a strong and inquiring mind he stored it with much 
useful and practical knowledge. He was, when quite young, apprenticed to 
a house carpenter, who chose rather to keep him actively at work, than to 
permit him to go to school, which, undoubtedly, in a great measure, was one 
of the causes of his great muscular strength for which he was so very noted. 
A short time before he became of age his master called him into the shop, and 
taking a piece of chalk and a board set some sums in addition and subtraction, 
which he performed, charging Richard to observe how they were done, and 
saying, " There, boy, that's the way to cipher, now go to your work." When 
he arrived at maturity, he was considered one of the strongest, if not the 
strongest man, in the country ; his strength was estimated at greater than 
that of a horse. He at one time stopped a horse that was running away by 
catching hold of the end of the cart and pulling back with all his strength. 
He once lifted a cannon at Martha's Vineyard weighing 1,800 lbs. Another 
instance is related of his strength : he one day placed his hands and feet upon 
the ground and allowed his friends to place sacks of wheat upon his back. 
They placed thirteen there before he requested them to stop. They held two 
and one-half bushels each, making in the aggregate not far from two thousand 
pounds. In 1723 he built the first wharf on the island of Nantucket; he also 
built the first windmill. The latter he considered a difficult matter to 
undertake as he had never seen one. His mind became greatly absorbed 

11 



82 MACY GENEALOGY. 

upon the subject, and he one night dreamed how to construct the mill. He 
placed confidence in his dream, and instructed his workmen accordingly, and 
the result was a good strong windmill. He was of the Baptist persuasion 
in early life, but changed his views and joined the Society of Friends, in 
which society he became an elder. He continued a member of that society 
during the remainder of his life, and died at the advanced age of over ninety 
yeare.

A letter from Zaccheus Macy^ fcrwarding to the Historical Society of Massachuseiis 

an account of the names of some old Sachems and Indians and giving the Indian 

divisions of the island, ^c. 

Nantucket y* 2* y* 10^ 1792 

My Friend and Kinsman : — Agreeable to the request of the Massachusetts 
Historical Society, I have wrote and explained many words and names of 
certain parts and places of or on the island of Nantucket, both in English 
and Indian, as well as I could : but there is not one person now left that I 
can get any help from in these matters. So I have wrote as well as I can on 
the affiiirs or matters, but I sometimes almost fear, whether it may not seem 
flat and old to them, but I have not wrote anything but what I am very 
sure is true, according to the best account I could get. Further please to 
inform our said society, that I received a small letter from them, expressing 
their thanks for my little book I sent them before, which I kindly received 
and here return the same to them for their notice on such an old flat piece, 
and I have sent them an old stone pipe, such as our old native Indians made 
and smoked in, before the English came amongst them. They had a sort of 
weed or herb they called poke, which they used instead of tobacco, which 
weed resembled tobacco, but I do not know of any now growing on said island. 
The said pipe is something marred and broke, but still shows some consider- 
able curiosity, but I only suppose it was made out of blue clay and muscle 
shells, pounded, and mixed, and then burnt, but it is commonly called a stone 
pipe. I once had a complete one, but it is lost And I have sent them a 
shell taken out of my well thirty-nine feet below the face of the earth; and I 
have taken many sorts of shells out of wells near forty feet down. And one 
time when the old men were digging a well at the stage called Siasconset, it 
it said, they found a whale's bone near thirty feet below the face of the earth, 
which things are past our accounting for. 

So I must break short, and only have to send you all my love and respect, 

which comes from your old and ready fnend to serve 

Zaccheus Mact 
To Peleg Coffin Esquire, of 

Xantucket, now resident in Boston 

P. S. Please to take a copy of my last work or journal by reason I have 
not got it on my book all, for I have enlarged on many things and names, 
which we may want for our own curiosity. 




MACY GENEALOGY. 101 

To the Historical Society. 

"Wannochmamock was the first sachem at the south east part of the island, 
when the English first came to Nantucket. Next to him was his son called 
Sonsoauco and next to him were his two sons called Cain and Abel. These 
two agreed to divide the sachem-right, two third parts to Cain and one third 
part to Abel. The said Cain had one daughter, whose name was Jemima, 
married to James Shaa. From Abel sprang Eben Abel, and from him 
sprang Benjamin Abel, the last sachem, from whom I bought all his right, 
title and property that he had on said island, for and in behalf of the whole 
English proprietors. All the said Jamima's right was bought by our old 
proprietors many years before, as may fully appear on our records. Their 
lands or bounds began at a place on the south side of the island, called 
Touphchue Pond, and ran across to the northward to a brown rock marked 
on the west side, that lies to the northward of our washing pond. Called 
Gibb's Pond, on the west side of Saul's hills and so over towards Podpis 
swamp, and then to the eastward to a place, Sesacacha Pond by the east 
sea. At the south east part of said tract is a high bluft* head of land, called 
Tom Never's Head; and about two miles to the northward stands our 
famous fishing stage houses, where our sick people go for their health, 
called Siasconset ; and about a mile still to the northward is a very high cliff 
of land called Sancoto Head, then about a mile still to the northward 
stands another fishing stage called Sesacacha. 

Next begins the old sachem called "Wauwinet; his bounds begin adjoining 
to the northward of the said "Wannochmamock's land and run still along to 
the northward and take in all Squam, and run on to our long sandy point, 
called Coetue or Nauma, which in the English is Long Point, where our 
Massachusetts light house now stands, and then to the westward to New 
Town, then to the southward to a place called Weweder Ponds, which in 
English signifies a pair of horns, by reason there are two ponds that run to a 
point next to the sea, and spread apart so as to leave a neck of land, called 
Long Joseph's Point; which two ponds spread apart so as to resemble a pair 
of horns. And the said Wauwinet had two sons the oldest son was named 
Isaac, but was mostly called Nicornoose, which signifies, in English, to suck 
the fore teat; and his second son was named Wawpordonggo, which in 
English is white face, for his face was one side white, and the other side 
brown or Indian color. And the said Nicornoose married, and had one son 
named Isaac, and one daughter ; and then he turned away his proper wife. 



102 MACY GENEALOGY. 

and took another woman and had two sons, named Wat and Paul Noose ; 
and when his true son Isaac grew up to be a man, he resented his fiither's 
behavior so much, that he went off and left them for the space of near fifty 
years, it was not known where. And in that time his true sister married to 
one Daniel Spotsor, and, he reigned sachem, by his wife, near about forty 
years: and we made large purchases of the said Spotsors. 

And then about sixty years past or more, there came an Indian man from 
Nanset, called Great Jethro, and he brought Judah Paddock and one Hanse 
with him, and he challenged the sachem right by being son to the said true 
son of Nicornoose, and when they first opened the matter to our old proprie- 
tors, they continued to keep the said Jethro close, until they could send some 
good committee to find out by our old Indians, whether they ever knew or 
heard of the said Xicornoose having such a'son gone, and they soon found 
out by the old Indians, that he had, but they had not heard what was become 
of him. So they soon found, they should loose all they had bought of the 
said Spotsors, then they held a parley with him said Jethro, and agreed to 
buy all his right, title and property that he owned on said island, as appears 
on our records. And the said Nicomoose gave deeds to his two bastard sons 
Paul and Wat Noose, forty acres each, a little to the eastward of Podpis 
village. The first sachem at the south-west part of said island. His bounds 
were at the said Weweder Ponds, and from thence to the northward to a 
place called Gunsue meadow at Monemoy, where we now call New Town, 
and from thence westward along to the southward of the hills called Pops- 
quatchet Hills, where our three mills now stand, and so to the west sea, 
called Tawtcmeo, which we call the Hummock pond. And his name was 
Autapeeot. Next to him was his son called Harry Poritain. Next to him 
was Peter Mausauquit. Next to him was Isaac Peter. Next to him wad 
lame Isaac, of whom we bought the last and all that sachem right : and 
their habitation was Moyaucomet, which signifies a meeting-place, and their 
meeting-house they call Moyaucomer. And the said Autapeeot was called a 
great warrior, and got his land by his bow. 

The fourth sachem was at the north west part, called Potconet, and owned 
all the little island called Tuckernuck, which signifies in English, a loaf of 
bread, and his bounds extended from Madaket down eastward to Wesko, 
which in English is the white stone, and so on the north side of Autapscot 
land, all bought of him at the coming of the English, saving some particular 
tracts that belong to the Jafets and the Hoights and some others. 



MACY GENEAXOGY. 103 

Now I shall give some of the most respectable Indians in "Wannochmamock's 
bounds. There was James Mamack, a minister of the gospel, and justice of 
the peace, and behaved well in his station. Old Aesop, the weaver, was a 
schoolmaster; old Saul, a very stern looking old man. Joshua Mamack 
succeeded in his father James Mamack's place. Richard Nominash and his 
brother Sampson and little Jethro were all very substantial, and a number 
more very trusty men. 

The most noted Indians in Autapscot's bounds were Benjamin Tashama, a 
minister of the gospel, and a school-master to teach the children to read and 
write. He was grandson to the old sachem. But there was an old Indian, 
named Zacchary Hoite, a minister before the said Tashama, but he did not 
behave so well. He told his hearers they must do as he said, but not as 
he did. 

And there was one Indian man, his name was James Skouel, but was 
mostly called Corduda. He was justice of the peace, and very sharp with 
them if they did not behave well. Hee would fetch them up, when they did 
not tend their corn well, and order them to have ten stripes on their backs, 
and for any rogue tricks and getting drunk. And if his own children played 
any rogue tricks, he would serve them the same sauce. There happened 
some Englishmen at his court, when a man was brought up for some rogue 
tricks, and one of these men was named Nathan Coleman, a pretty crank 
sort of a man, and the Indian man pleaded for an appeal to Esquire Bunker, 
and the old judge turned round to said Nathan and spoke thus " What do you 
think of this great business ? " then said Nathan answered thus : " May be 
you had better whip him first, then let him go to Squire Bunker," and the 
old judge took Nathan's advice. And so Nathan answered two purposes, 
the one was to see the Indian whipped, the other was, he was sure the Indian 
would not want to go to Esquire Bunker for fear of another whipping. 

I will say something more in recommendation of some of our old Indian 
natives. They were very solid and sober at their meetings of worship, and 
carried on in the form of Presbyterians, but in one thing imitated the Friends 
or Quakers, so called : which was to hold meetings on the first day of the 
week and on the fifth day of the week, and attended their meetings very 
precisely. I have been at their meetings many times and seen their devotion ; 
and it was remarkably solid ; and I could understand the most of what was 
said ; and they always placed us in a suitable seat to sit ; and they were not 
put by, by our coming in, but rather appeared glad to see us come in. And 



104 MACY GENEALOGY. 

a minister is called coontaumuchary. And when the meeting was done, 
they would take their tinder-box and strike fire and light their pipes, and, 
may be, would draw three or four whifs and swallow the smoke, and then 
blow it out of their noses, and so hand their pipes to their next neighbor. 
And one pipe of tobacco would serve ten or a dozen of them. And they 
would say "tawpoot" which is, "I thank ye.'' It seemed to be done in a 
way of kindness to each other. 

And as I said before, they had justices, constables, grand-jurymen, and 
carried on for a great many years, many of them very well and precisely, 
and lived in very good fashion. Some of them were weavers, some good 
carpenters. 

Now I will begin at the west end of the island, which we call Smith's 
Point, but the Indians Call Nopque, which was called a landing place, when 
they came from the Vineyard, but they call it Noapx ; then eastward about 
three miles comes the Hammock Pond, where we once had a great number 
of whale houses with a mast raised for a look out, with holes bored through 
and sticks put in like a ladder, to go up ; then about three miles eastward to 
the said Weweder ponds, stood another parcel of whale houses; then about 
three miles eastward to Nobedeer Pond was where Benjamin Gardner lived 
formerly ; then about three and one half miles eastward is the aforesaid Tom 
Never's Head ; then two miles to the northward is the famous town or fishing 
stage called Siasconset ; then about one mile northward is the high head of 
land called Sancoty Head, and the Indians called Naphchecoy, which signifies 
round the head ; then about one mile northward is the aforesaid Sesacacha 
pond, where our other fishing stage stands. Then begins the said Squam, 
and runs northward two miles to the beginning of our said long sandy point 
called Naauma ; and the first is one mile to a place called Canskata pond, 
where are some woods and meadow ; and four miles northward is where the 
said Massachusetts lighthouse is, on the north end of said point Then 
about one mile to the northward of the entering on of the above said long 
point, begins another neck or beach, called little Coetue and runs about five 
miles on about a west by south course till it comes within about one mile of 
our town called Wesko, which makes the cast side of the entering-in of our 
harbor. Then next to the said Squam, westward, is the village called Podpis 
Neck, where our fiilling-mill stands; then next westward is the famous neck 
of land called Quaise or Maisquatuck Neck, which in the English signifies 



MAOY GENEALOGY. 105 

the reed land, which was a tract of land given to Thomas Mayhew from one 
of the old sachems, and was reserved by the said Mayhew to himself when 
he sold his patent right to the proprietors ; which neck makes the west side 
of the said Podpis Harbor, now owned by Josiah Barker, Esquire, and Captain 
Shnbael Coffin and Captain Thomas Delano. Then next westward is the 
Josiah Barker's lot or field, called Show Aucamor, which in English signi- 
fies the middle field of land. Then abont four miles westward is the town 
called Wesco; then next westward is a place called Watercomet, which 
signifies a pond field, which formerly was owned by the old natives called 
the Hoites. Then next westward is the great pond called Cuppame, where 
old Tristram Coffin lived, the old grandfather to almost all of us, which was 
owned by the old families of the natives called the Jafets ; then next west- 
ward about four miles is called Eel Point and Madaket Harbor, which is 
the north west part of the said island ; and then about two miles westward is 
the said little island, called Tuckernuck, which signifies in English, a loaf of 
bread, for it appears round, and in the middle pretty high : which was bought 
by the said old Tristram Coffin from the old sachem Potconet, in the year 
1669, by virtue of a patent he had from New York.

MACY GENEALOGY. 1 1 1 

Caleb Macy during the greater part of his minority assisted his father in 
the milling business, after which he learned the trade of shoemaking ; but 
his health becoming impaired, in addition to a naturally feeble constitution, he 
concluded to adopt some other pursuit. Thinking that sea voyages would be 
of benefit to him he followed it for several years on coasting and whaling 
voyages. At the age of thirty he married, gave up going to sea and returned 
to his trade, which business he carried on quite extensively and profitably. 
He invested largely in land, and at one time owned one-thirtieth part of the 
island of Nantucket During the revolutionary war he lost a large portion 
of his property; but his loss occasioned him but little uneasiness, as his 
immediate wants were few and his children had grown up to maturity, and in 
positions not to require his pecuniary aid. He continued his farming and 
shoemaking business on a small scale until near the close of his life. He 
was a man of excellent character, possessed of deep religious convictions, 
charitable in the highest degree, and scrupulously honest in all his dealings. 
His conduct through life was such as to win him hosts of friends, who knew 
that to follow his example was to win the coveted title of "good and faithftil 
servant."

Jonathan Macy (83) was recorded on the Nantucket Records as " Mari- 
ner." He commanded a coast wise vessel and would take a cargo of oils, 
candles, whalebone, etc., to Philadelphia or Baltimore, sell them himself and 
purchase with the proceeds a return cargo of flour, staves, iron, etc., for 
fitting out whale ships. He appeared to entertain a strong conviction in the 
continued prosperity of the island of Nantucket, as he invested largely in 
real estate there. There is still considerable property on the island standing 
in his name on the Book of Records. His wife lived to the advanced age of 
ninety-five years eight months and fifteen days. She retained her faculties 
in a remarkable degree until a short time prior to her death. 

A few years before her death she had her daguerreotype taken, with the 
following members of her family beside her : her son Josiah Macy (212), her 
grandson William H. Macy (568), her great-granddaughter Mary J. Kings- 
land ( ), and her great-great-grandson Cornelius Kingsland, making in all

five generations, living at one time, and having their likenesses taken at the 
same moment. Their ages amounted to 222 years. 

January 14th, 1868. This day the spirit of Cornelius Engsland passed 
from earth to heaven. As he was the youngest in the picture of the five 
generations, and as a kind Providence had willed it that I should stand 
beside his death bed, and listen to his last parting words, I digress from the 
direct Macy descent to let my readers see the result of a pure life. He was 
an only child, and an only grandchild on his father's side, surrounded by 
everything to make life attractive and desirable, brought up in the very lap 
of luxury, and having traveled over Europe and this country ; yet he was 
uncontaminated by mingling with the world. He was idolized by his rela- 
tions and beloved by his friends, but in his twentieth year, after a severe 
sickness of three weeks, he passed away without a struggle and without a 
longing for earth. Turning to his mother, whose heart was breaking at his 
bedside, he said, " Farewell, dearest mother, my heavenly father's arm is 
around me and I am going to rest in Christ." He spoke beautifully to those 
around him, saying "Do not cry for me, I am so happy." "I am going 
where they marry not, neither are they given in marriage." He wished to 
be remembered to his friends, saying, " My friends have all been so kind 
to me." Then kissing his parents, and looking towards each one around 
him, bidding them a last farewell by his looks, his voice having failed, he 
turned his eyes towards heaven, smiled the smile of an angel, and the lamp 
flickered and flickered and went out. Death had no sting, and the grave 
claimed no victory. He leaves but pleasant memories behind him, his life 
was all goodness, all truthfulness, and all purity. His funeral was one of the 
largest ever attended in this city in memory of one so young ; at least 
five hundred mourners were there. Eight of his young friends, with white 
scarfe and gloves, carried the casket containing his earthly remains, and 
few who witnessed that procession will ever have it obliterated from their 
memory. His young friends loved him, and they moved with that slow 
tread that betokened reverence for the character and life of him that had 
gone before them. His remains were placed in a catacomb in theKingsland 
vault at Greenwood, and on the tablet beneath his name are the words, 
" Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God."

Reuben Macy (135) removed from Nantucket with his family, and settled 
at Hudson, N. Y., or more properly speaking, Claverack Landing, in 1783 
or 1784. The city of Hudson was founded by settlers from Nantucket, 
Providence and Martha's Vineyard, after the manner of the original purchase 
of the island of Nantucket. Many descendants of the first settlers or pro- 
prietors of Hudson still reside there. The following extract from Miller's 
Sketches of Hudson will show who were the original proprietors, and how 
their association was formed : 

Proprietors* Association. 

At an early period of the Revolution, the whale fisheries of Nantucket 
were broken up by the English marine. In the year 1783, a considerable 
number of the inhabitants of the island, desirous of bettering their fortunes, 
determined to leave it, and make a settlement somewhere upon the Hudson 
river. The enterprise doubtless originated at Providence, but was joined by 
others from Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Thomas Jenkins, to whom 
more than any other individual it owed its success, although a native of Nan- 
tucket, was at the time a resident of Providence, and a wealthy merchant. 




MACY GENEALOGY. 139 

In the spring of 1783, he formed an association, to consist of not more than 
thirty members, all of whom should be merchants, or "concerned in navi- 
gating the deep." It was joined in Providence by Thomas and Seth Jenkins, 
David Lawrence, Hezekiah Dayton, Nathaniel Greene, Samuel Mansfield, 
William Wall, John Thurston, John Alsop, and Cotton Gelston. In July, 
1783, Cotton Gelston proceeded to Nantucket, where it was joined by 
Stephen Paddock, Joseph Barnard, Charles Jenkins, Deborah Jenkins, 
Gideon Gardner, Reuben Folger, Alexander Coffin, Benjamin Hussey, 
Shubael Worth, Paul Hussey, Benjamin Folger, Reuben Macy, Walter 
Folger, Benjamin Starbuck and John Cartwright. The two last named did 
not, however, come with the others. On his return, Mr. Gelston stopped at 
Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard, where Marshall and Lemuel Jenkins, Peleg 
Clark and John Allen, also united with the enterprise. At Newport it was 
joined by William Minturn. Ezra Reed and Titus Morgan joined in after 
they had purchased Claverack Landing. 

The articles of agreement subscribed by them were the following : 

Articles of Agreement. 

We, the subscribers, being joint proprietors of a certain Tract of Land 
lying at Claverack Landing on the banks of the Hudson River, purchased 
by Thomas Jenkins of Peter Hogeboom, Junr., and others, for the purpose 
of establishing a commercial settlement, on principles of equity, do enter into 
the following Articles of Agreement to wit : — 

Article the First. 

That each proprietor subscribe for such part of the above Tract, in pro-

MACY GENEALOGY. 141 

Where these articles of agreement were executed does not appear. It is 
said the original was dated at Providence. All the proprietors do not appear 
to have signed them. This is explained by the fact that two or three did not 
continue members, and the shares of some were included and covered by the 
signatures of the other proprietors. 

For the purpose of selecting a suitable site, a committee was chosen by 
them, and sent, probably in the summer of 1783, to sail up the river and 
examine diflferent localities. Thomas Jenkins and Cotton Gelston were a 
part of that committee, with two others whose names we do not know ; nor 
do we know whether they were empowered to effect a purchase, or to what 
extent they proceeded in a negotiation, before reporting to the islanders. We 
have not been able to get back of the fact of such committee being sent. 
They were urged at New York by Col. Rutgers to make a purchase upon 
the East river, and came near doing so. They tarried, too, at Poughkeep- 
sie, with a view of purchasing; but desirous of making a full examination of 
the river, proceeded, and finally made selection of Claverack Landing, as the 
site of the "future city." The purchase when made was in the name of 
Thomas Jenkins, and by him the lands were deeded to the other proprietors. 
Five hundred pounds was paid down as part of the purchiise money. What 
decided them in their selection does not appear — probably the natural beauty 
of the position, connected with the fact that it was in the vicinity of a tolera- 
bly thickly settled and thriving farming population, and at the head of ship 
navigation. Notwithstanding the early success of the enterprise, the selec- 
tion in after years proved not to have been judicious. It has always been 
contended by many, that had the location of the settlement been upon the 
west side of the river, the career of its prosperity could not have been checked, 
and Hudson could not have failed to become what Albany now is. Of the 
correctness of this view it is not the province of the writer to speak. What- 
ever may be said of the position in a business point of view, it is not surpassed 
by any upon the river for healthfulness and the beauty of the scenery sur- 
rounding it. The sagacity of those " men of old " may have been at fault ; 
but let us be grateful to them, at least, that they have made us a " city upon 
an hill,*' with the beautiful and grand in nature upon every side of us. 

In the fall of 1783, two families arrived here from Nantucket. It would be 
interesting to know who those " first families " were ; but we have been able to 
ascertain only one of them, that was the family of Seth Jenkins. The first 
child bom after the purchase was Elizabeth Bunker, who died while young. 



142 MACY GENEALOGY. 

She belonged to a jEwnily who appear to have left Nantucket some years 
previous and settled in Dutchess county, coming to Hudson as soon as they 
heard of the purchase. In the spring of 1784, the other proprietors followed 
with their ibmilies, bringing with them several vessels, and in some instances 
the frames of dwellings, prepared at ITantucket, for erection upon their 
arrival.

Zephaniah C. Macy (489), lived to be nearly eighty-five years of age, and never 
left the island of Nantucket but once, and then only for a few days. Not until 
he was sixty-seven years of age could he be prevailed upon to leave the island. 
When he finally yielded to the entreaties of his friends a party of them took him 
to New Bedford, and from there to Fall River, ffis astonishment at the wonder- 
ftil sights which met his gaze on every side was truly interesting to behold. 
The locomotive particularly claimed his attention, and he examined it with 
care, and watched its immense power with wonder. Whilst at Fall River he 
noticed one of the Sound steamers, the Bay State, at the wharf. Being a 



MACY GENEALOGY. 149 

larger steamer than he had ever seen before, he walked down on the wharf 
and paced off her length. Capt Brown of the Bay State asked him how 
long he made her ; to which Mr. Macy replied, giving the number of feet 
according to his pacing, when Capt. Brown remarked that it was within one 
foot of her exact measurement. Capt. Brown was very anxions to take him 
to New York to show him that great metropolis, and tendered him the 
finest stateroom on the boat; but all persuasions were unavailing: he said 
he felt that he had already seen more than he could realize; that he was 
a long way from home, and that he felt anxious to get back, insinuating that 
if he lived to get back to Nantucket he would never be caught off the island 
again. He visited some of the cotton mills at Fall River, and he looked upon 
the thousands of spindles revolving with lightning rapidity, as though they 
were endowed with consciousness, or were something more than human.

Abraham Macy (170),re8ided on Nantucket, until the year 1773, at which 
time, he with his family left the island, and settled at a place called Quaker Hill, 
Dutchess Co., N. Y. He resided at that place during the revolutionary strug- 
gle that ultimately severed these United States from the crown of England. 
Although he did not engage in the conflict by taking up arms — he being a 
member of the Society of Friends, and opposed in principle to the taking of 
human life — he, in common with many others, had to suflfer more or less in 
various ways, the consequences growing out of the demoralizing influences 
that are ever engendered by war! During that eventful pmod^ he was en- 
gaged in selling goods, having a store-room in one part of his dwelling. At 
one time some half dozen American soldiers called and asked for lodgings 
during the night, and, to induce a favorable answer, added, that many rob- 
beries were being committed by a band of lawless banditti, and if any attempt 
of that kind was made, that they would protect the family at all hazards. 
He informed them, that they were not in a situation to accommodate them, and 
if they were, he could not accept their proffered aid, as his dependence for 
preservation was not upon deadly weapons, nor could h6 consent for any one 
to use them for his own or family's protection. 

It so happened that two nights thereafter the house was assailed by a band 
of robbers. At this time four young women, two of whom were his elder 
daughters, were sleeping in an adjoining room to the one occupied by Abraham 
and his wife. The other two were visitors. As soon as he discovered that 
the house waa being entered, having by him at that time in a bag $350 in 
silver, he immediately took it to his daughters for safe keeping. They fearing 
to take it, one of th« visitors (Hannah Jenkins afterwards Barnard, who after- 
wards became an eminent minister in the Society of Friends and a woman of 
much notoriety), said, "Hand it to me, I am not afraid to take it." This was 
the work of a moment only, by which time two ruffians, disguised and fully 
armed, had entered the room. Abraham was ordered to light a candle, and 
they then demanded his money, the key to the store room, etc. They gathered 



152 MACY GENEALOGY. 

up about $300 worth of goods, and from the drawer took some $30 or $40 in 
Continental money — of more value then perhaps than after — searching other 
parts of the house, took what silver they could find consisting mostly of 
spoons. One of the robbers demanded his watch : being told that he had 
none, he pointed his pistol at him, saying, "Deliver your watch instantly, or I 
will blow you through/' He told him he could shoot him if he chose, for he 
could not deliver what he did not possess. 

As a finale to their work of plunder, one of the robbers took up the shoes 
belonging to Abraham's wife, and proceeded to remove the silver buckles that 
were attached. She, discovering this, said, " Shame on the man that will rob 
a woman of her shoe buckles," when he spitefully threw them down, and, 
with an oath, said, "Keep your shoe buckles." Although but two robbers 
had entered the house, Abraham discovered there were several of the band 
fully armed outside stationed at each window and door. While all this 
alarming scene of plunder had been going on, not one other of the j&mily 
had left their beds (trusting in quietness for preservation), nor had they been 
molested; and thus, the bag of silver remained undiscovered to benefit the 
family after in their stripped condition ! Sixteen years after these events had 
transpired, a young woman discovered in a stone chimney not very far away, 
six of the silver tea spoons which were then taken. And, although Abraham 
and his family had years before left that neighborhood, there were those still, 
who remembered the circumstance of the robbery; and the initials A. P. M., 
being still visible, although an unsuccessfiil attempt had been made to 
obliterate them. Being afterwards presented to the family, they were at once 
recognized, and the narrator of these events now has one of these same spoons 
in his possession^ which is prized as a memento of the eventful scenes and trials 
our fathers passed through when the desolations of war came home appallingly 
to the fireside of the domestic circle ! 

From Quaker Hill he with his family moved to Hudson, N. T., remaining 
there but a short time, purchased a farm and settled in what is now called 
the town of Ghent. The country at that time being comparatively new, he 
with his large family of ten children, had many deprivations and severe trials to 
pass through. The settlers that preceded them were of German descent, 
some of whom kept slaves, were uncultivated, intemperate, apparently not 
half civilized, and none too honest, made the first few years of their sojourn 
anything but pleasant. At one time, soon after he had settled in his new 
home, six fatted pigs were stolen just as they were to be put up; at another 




MACY GENEALOGY. 158 

time a fatted beef was driven off, and many other depredations were com- 
mitted. Their losses were bitterly felt at a time when it was with great difficidiy 
that a sufficiency of food could be obtained or produced for the daily supply 
of a large family. During all these days of suffering and trial, he lived out 
the Christian and nonresistant principle, of " doing good for evil," and by 
his sterling integrity and upright walk, in time exerted an influence 
for good upon those around him, and long lived to see the neighborhood 
filled up with a respectable and entirely different class of inhabitants, he 
departing in peace at the advanced age of eighty-two years. He was a man 
possessed of an enlarged mind, of liberal and comprehensive views ; and few 
men of his day were better read in ancient or modern history than was he. 
So fiir reaching and comprehensive were his views with regard to the future 
of this country, that he often amused his credulous listeners by predicting 
the use of steam as a motive power, and the opening of extensive canals 
etc., very many years before these improvements were contemplated by the 
public mind, which show that he was a man of much sagacity. 

In closing this account we will add, that when first settling in this neigh- 
borhood he, with his large family of ten children, for two years lived in a log 
house containing two small rooms with bedroom attached. At the expira- 
tion of that time, and eighty-one years ago now, he, with his own hands, 
erected a firame dwelling, and he who has narrated the foregoing events, now 
occupies that same dwelling.

his mind was so occupied with books that he abandoned the trade. He made 
several whaling voyages, but that not proving satisfactory to his turn of mind 
he gave up going to sea, determined to follow the bent of his inclination. He 
established himself as a school teacher, and his manner of teaching was so pleas- 
ing to his pupils that he generally had as many scholars as he could manage. 
He particularly excelled in arithmetic and navigation. His close applica- 
tion for many years compelled him reluctantly to abandon his school on 
account of his health. He was never known to have any difficulty with any 
one of his fellow men : he would rather suffer a wrong than do a wrong act. 
He was a member of the Society of Friends, and his deportment through life 
corresponded with the religious professions of the society.

158 MACY GENEALOGY. 

Obed Macy's parents had a large family of children, and, as during his 
early life, their means were quite limited, he had few opportunities for 
acquiring an education. During the revolutionary war he labored at shoe- 
making and farming. In 1783, he followed his inclination to go to sea, and 
was engaged three short voyages in the whaling business, when he abandoned 
the pursuit, because of a belief that his moral character was thereby en- 
dangered, being many times shocked by the habits and language of the 
sailors with whom he was compelled to associate. He had been bred as a 
member of the Society of Friends, with whom he maintained his connection 
until his death. He returned to His trade as a shoemaker for a short time, 
and then entered into partnership with his brother Silvanus : they fitted 
out vessels in the whaling, fishing and coasting trade, and amassed consider- 
able wealth, a large portion of which they lost by the French seizures in 1798, 
and by the captures of the English in the war of 1812. The partnership con- 
tinued for forty-seven years, and until the death of Silvanus. During their 
whole business connection the most perfect harmony prevailed between them ; 
and so strong was their love for each other, that their whole property, 
including even their furniture, was held in common, and no account was kept 
of family expenses, each purchasing and paying from the common fund for 
whatever he desired. 

The subject of this sketch was at all times very precise and systematic, 
and much interested in the statistical history of Nantucket, which title he 
gave to a work published in 1835. His character is shown by a few words 
written by himself: " I never was guilty of swearing an oath in my life ; I 
never told a lie since I was a child ; I never willfdlly wronged a person of a 
silence; I never purloined another's property; I never played at cards; I 
never was where fiddling and dancing were carried on five minutes ; I never 
played at any game where anything was at stake ; I never drank spirits to 
intoxication." He commenced Jan. 1, 1799, keeping a daily record of 
important events, which he continued until about the close of his life, filling 
six large volumes. They are replete with valuable and interesting items. 
During the latter part of his life he lost the use of one of his eyes, but 
retained his mental faculties until the very last.

John W. Macy of Winchester, Ind., who has rendered great service in 
collecting information for this work from the Indiana branches, and who 
traveled some distance to see William Macy (202), writes as follows in regard 
to him : " He removed from North Carolina with his father to Jefferson Co., 
Tenn., where he resided until theyear 1720, when he removed to Wayne Co., 
in this state (Indiana), where, by dint of industry and economy, he accu- 
mulated a competence; and by his acts of kindness and charity won a 
place in the hearts of all who knew him. He was for many years a member 
of the board of commissioners for this county. He is now very old (eighty- 
one years) and feeble bodily ; but his mind seems as youthful and vigorous 
as ever. He heartily sympathizes with you in your undertaking, and sends 
you his best wishes, and prays that you may be abundantly successful. 
Seeing him so cheerfiil now that he can almost feel his feet touching the 
* cold waters ' is an incentive to me to fight the great battle of life on the 
side of right and justice; for what must be the quiet joy of that old man 
feeling that he has done his duty ; that he has stood to his post in the hour 
of danger and that the relief is coming at last. Such men do not live in 
vain, neither do they ever die."

In taking a retrospective view of the life of Josiah Macy, it presents one of 
profound goodness. It is not in the legislative halls that his voice has been 
heard, nor in public assemblages ; but it is in the quiet social walks of life 
where his influence has been felt and his deeds have been recorded. From 
his first entrance upon the commercial stage of life every act appears to 
have been controlled by justice, equity and moral right, and he retired from 
active business with a record second to none, with a character unblemished, 
loved, honored and respected by all who had ever had business relations 
with him. The accumulation of money seared not his heart, but enabled 
him more readily to bestow his offerings to the poor and needy. The 
deadening influence of selfishness never coursed through his veins. He has 
always maintained the character of a Christian gentleman in its fullest sense. 
His hospitality and politeness are proverbial characteristics. With him 
profanity was a sin ; and during his seafaring life he not only was never 
known to utter an oath, but strove to prevent it in others. It has frequently 
been remarked that the ofliccrs and men under his command so soon learned 
to love and respect him, that they invariably avoided the use of profane 
language in his presence. He has always been a member of the Society of 
Friends, and for many years an elder in that society. His whole life has 
been marked by his abiding faith in the wisdom and goodness of his 
Heavenly Father, putting full trust in Him and resigning himself to His will. 
Duringa severe illness a few years since, when his sufferings were very great, 
and even when the knife of the surgeon had to be called into requisition, he 
displayed great Christian fortitude, and frequently, when his children were 
by his bedside, would he assure them of the happiness he felt in having 
passed his life in the manner in which he had, and that he felt perfectly resigned 
to await the calling of his Maker. He has been the means of turning many 
from the paths of vice by his example, kind actions and advice. A much 
respected member of society stated to me a few years since with much feel- 
ing that when a young man he placed little or no restraint upon himself^ 
yielding himself up to the gratification of all sorts of pleasures until wine

had almost the complete mastery of him ; that he went abroad, squandered 
what money he had, and became a vile dmnkard, when kind Providence sent 
Josiah Macy to a certain city in Emx)pe, and to use his words as near as I 
can recollect them, he said, " Josiah Macy lifted me from the gutter a 
drunkard, took me to his hotel, and by his kind watchfulness and Christian 
care reformed me, and to him with divine assistance am I indebted for what I 
am to-day." Captain Morrell, in his work called Four Voyages^ pays a hand- 
some tribute to him, which I annex. In answer to a letter asking for a 
sketch of his seafaring life, he writes so ftill and interesting a sketch that I 
subjoin it in fiill. It is written in, a very clear hand, and is valued as an 
autograph letter written in his eighty-third year. In 1866, he purchased a 
large plot at Woodlawn cemetery, which he presented to his male descendants, 
that they and their families who retained the name of Macy might find a 
final resting place for their remains. His children and grandchildren have 
had a granite monument placed in the centre of the plot with the name of 

Macy engraved on each side. The plot is feet in circumference, 

capable of containing the remains of many hundreds of his descendants. 
His life, his high sense of honor and integrity, his unscrupulous honesty, 
his kind heartedness, and gentlemanly bearing towards all, and his unwavering 
faith, are examples not only for his descendants but for all mankind. The 
City Fire Insurance Company of New York was incorporated by an act of 
the legislature, passed April 26, 1833. The first directors were Preserved 
Fish, Cornelius W. Lawrence, Josiah Macy, Abraham Bell, Robert Hicks, 
Robert J. Walker, Thomas Leggett, Jr., Thomas J. Townsend, "William H. 
Falls, John D. Wight, John Barrow, Joseph W. Corlies, Isaac Frost, 
Benjamin Clark, James Hall, Thomas Hunt, Edward A. Wight, Amos 
Willets, William C. White, Peter S. Titus and David S. Brown. Twelve out 
of the twenty-one have been called from earth, and four out of the remaining 
nine still retain their positions as directors, namely : Josiah Macy, John D, 
Wight, William C. White and Peter S. Titus, making nearly thirty-five 
years in which they have acted in that capacity. The accompanying photo- 
lithograph of what was known as a Mediterranean pass is of historical interest. 
They protected our shipping from the depredations of the Algerine pirates 
in the Mediterranean — the United States government having made a treaty 
with them, which exempted our vessels. They were printed on parchment, 
and the upper portion cut off*, which the Algerines retained a fac simile of, 
by which they could detect the genuineness of those presented to them — not 
being able to read they would match them.

MACY GENEALOGY. I73 

In a Narrative of Four Voyages written by Capt. Benjamin Morrell, the au- 
thor says : " I was justly considered a very * wild youth.' How long I 
should have continued in this thoughtless career of folly it is not easy to 
determine, had not Divine Providence raised up for me a faithful friend and 
adviser in the person of Capt. Josiah Macy, master of the ship Edward of 
New York, belonging to Samuel Hicks and himself. On a voyage to Cal- 
cutta, this worthy man, who is a pattern of all shipmasters, took me from be- 
fore the mast, and by his watchfulness and fatherly advice directed my 
attention to more manly and useful pursuits ; nor did he remit his guardian 
care until he saw me master of a ship. 

" Thus was I delivered from the path of indiscretion, which too often con- 
ducts to ruin, by the unsolicited friendship and benevolent feelings of an 
entire stranger, who long acted towards me the part of a parent and a tutor ; 
laboring incessantly to supply the glaring defects of my education, and to 
eradicate from my mind the seeds of folly, and plant in their stead the seeds 
of useful knowledge." 

Rye, 12th mo., 26th, 1861. 
To the President and Directors of the Tradesmen's Banky New York : 

Having taken up my residence most of the time in the country, which renders 
my attendance at the board very inconvenient, I therefore wish to resign my 
situation as a director. 

I sincerely hope the same prosperity and high standing may always con- 
tinue, that has marked the progress of the bank since my connection with it, 
which is upwards of thirty years. 

It is a pleasure to me to look back on the united feeling that has always 
existed among the officers and directors for the prosperity of the institution, 
and the kindness, consideration, and good feeling that has always been mani- 
fested towards each other. With my kind regards to all, I remain your 
assured friend, Josiah Macy. 

Tradesmen's Bank, New York, April 12th, 1862. 
Josiah Macyy Esq. 

Dear Sir: The board of directors of this bank, in deference to your wishes, 
at their last meeting accepted the resignation heretofore tendered by you, and 
have instructed me to forward to you a copy of a resolution passed by them 
as follows : 



174 MACY GENEALOGY. 

"Whereas, Josiah Macy, Esq., has tendered his resignation as a director 
of the Tradesmen's Bank, in consequence of his removal from the city, and the 
board of directors in reluctantly accepting the same, are desirous of expressing 
to him the high estimate they entertain of his services, as a director of the 
bank, do therefore 

" Resolve^ that the directors of the Tradsesmen's Bank feel deep and 
sincere regret to learn from Mr. Macy, his desire of resigning an office which 
he has so ably filled for the long period of thirty-two consecutive yeArs. 
That, from an association of so many years standing, they have learned to 
esteem him as a gentleman of direct purpose, great amiability and integrity 
of character. That they feel great reluctance to accept a resignation, which 
deprives the institution of the aid of his valuable business experience ; and 
that in retiring from the board he bears with him the respect and esteem 
of every member thereof, with their best wishes for his future health and 
happiness." 

Respectfully yours, 

Anthony Halsey, Cashier. 

Rye, Westchester Co.,.N. Y., 12mo, 1867. 
SUvanus J. Macy, 

My dear Grandson : Thy very acceptable letter came duly to hand, and I 
am glad to hear that you all enjoyed your visit on the island of Nantucket. 
I think thee has been very industrious in collecting information respecting 
the descendants of Thomas Macy, one of the first white men who settled on 
the island, and from whom I believe all the Macys are descendants. I 
notice thee wishes me to give thee all the information I have respecting my 
immediate relatives. Thee has been so thorough in making thy examina- 
tions that I have scarcely anything to add. Thee asks whether my grand- 
father was ever a minister in the Society of Friends; I think he was not, but 
I believe he was an elder, as was also my grandmother for many years. 
Their children were all members of the Society of Friends, and lived and died 
as such. As thee wished some incidents of my life, I will now mention some 
few which may be interesting to thee and others of ray descendants. I com- 
menced following the sea when quite young. Jonathan Macy, my father, I 
believe was the first one of the descendants of Thomas Macy that followed 
the sea. He was master of a vessel for a number of years in the coasting trade 
between Philadelphia and Nantucket. The cargoes of oils, candles, whalebone, 



MACY GENEALOGY. 175 

etc., which he took away, were consigned to him for sale, and with the pro- 
ceeds of which he would purchase return cargoes for the outfits of the whaling 
ships. My first voyage to sea was with him. After I was about fifteen 
years of age I followed the sea very steadily in the coasting trade, which was 
then very extensive from the island, as the fleet of whaling ships was large. 
For several years most of the sperm oil imported into the United States was 
manufactured on the island, and of course its product sent away for a market. 
This gave me a good opportunity to learn to be a sailor, and something about 
business. In 2nd month, 1805, 1 was married, soon after which I took com- 
mand of the sloop Hero, then about three months more than twenty years of 
age : took on board a cargo and sailed for Baltimore, Md. The cargo was con- 
signed to me, which I sold, and purchased a return cargo ►made quite a short 
and satisfactory little voyage to myself, and I believe to all concerned. I 
think I can say that I felt as happy then as at any period of my life, and as 
well satisfied with my position. My spirits were buoyant with hope, although 
my means as to property were small ; but that gave me not the least uneasi- 
ness; my confidence was strengthened by fiiends coming forward, and offer- 
ing to join me in buying or building any kind of a vessel that I wanted. 
As the Hero was rather small to beat along the coast in winter, after this 
voyage was ended I purchased one-quarter of a schooner called the Mount 
Hope between 90 and 100 tons. I made several voyages in her to Baltimore 
and Philadelphia. Late in the autumn of 1806, after I came home, we con- 
cluded to load the Mount Hope with a cargo of whale oil, whalebone, etc., 
for Marseilles. Took on board part of the cargo, went to New Bedford, 
finished loading, and -sailed, I think, in 1st or 2nd month, 1807, with liberty 
to go to any port for a market in case I received information to warrant 
changing. After sailing up the Mediterranean as far as Cape De Gat, I 
learned from a source that I could depend upon, that I could not sell the 
cargo at Marseilles, except at a great loss ; I immediately determined to go out 
of the Mediterranean, and try some other port. I stopped at Gibraltar, then 
at Cadiz, and then at Lisbon, where I sold the cargo very well, and was 
favored to return safe home, and wound up the voyage profitably, and to the 
ftill satisfaction of all concerned, as well as some commendation for my 
perseverance. Business now was very dull, as these were the days of nonin- 
tercourse laws and embargos, the forerunner and beginning of troubles that 
led to the war with Great Britain in 1812. After my return from Lisbon, I 
made several coasting voyages. 



176 MACY GENEALOGY. 

In first month, 1808, news was received at Nantucket that an embargo 
was or would be laid, stopping all vessels fix)m leaving the United States for 
any foreign port It was concluded at once to load the Mount Hope with a 
cargo of whale oil and sperm candles, and I was to leave in her and go in 
search of a market in the north of Spain, to clear for Corunna; and if I could 
not sell it there, then try Bilboa, or, in fiict, go any where I pleased. She was 
finished loading during the day, and that night was towed out of the harbor 
by a number of whale boats, manned by a goodly number of volunteers, but 
grounded on the bar where she lay until the next high tide when she floated 
off, and I proceeded on the voyage. It was quite a relief when I found 
myself passingthelighthouseon Great Point, as we had been under considerable 
anxiety from the time we commenced loading, not knowing what moment official 
information might come of the embargo and the voyage be broken up. My 
mind was a good deal exercised after I consented to undertake the voyage : 
our government was in a very unsettled state, the French, Berlin and Milan 
decrees were in force, and the English orders in council in opposition to them. 
Paper blockades seemed the order of the day in Europe ; and embargos and 
nonintercourse acts was the policy of our government to counteract them. 
Our foreign commerce was harrassed very much at that time by France and 
England. Our seamen were forcibly taken from our vessels on the high seas 
by English men of war, and compelled to serve on board their ships, which 
was one of the causes of the war of 1812. From this time until war was 
declared, there was much care and anxiety in our foreign trade. The 
beginning of this voyage was not pleasant to me : starting in the middle of 
winter in a deep loaded vessel, a little less than one hundred tons, to cross the 
Atlantic ; the cargo hurried on board in the way it was pushed off in the haste 
that was necessary ; and to go and look for a market ; however, when we take 
hold of the plow we must not look back, so I concluded to do the best that I 
could. About ten days out in a severe gale sprung the foremast When 
near Fayal, where I was heading to repair damages, I was boarded by a 
British cruiser, and ordered not to enter any ports in the bay of Biscay, as 
they were in a state of blockade that was done under the British orders in 
council. I arrived at Fayal, repaired the foremast, sold my cargo, and 
delivered it there and at St Michaels and Terceira, and returned safe back 
with a cargo of wine, oranges and specie, proceeds of outward cargo, making 
a very fair and satisfactory voyage. After my return I made a few voyages 
between Boston and Philadelphia as business was very dull on the island on 



MACY GENEALOGY. I77 

account of political aifairs, many being afraid to send their ships away on 
long whaling voyages. 

In the spring of 1809 it was proposed to make up a cargo for the West 
Indies, and I was solicited to go and take charge of the cargo and sell it, 
which I declined, and sold my one-fourth of the Mount Hope. I then took 
charge of a schooner about one hundred tons, and made a few trips coast-wise. 
In the spring of 1810 1 purchased five-eighths of the brig Little William, made a 
trip to Philadelphia and New .York and back to Nantucket, put her in good 
order and sailed for Philadelphia, where I chartered her to go to Alexandria, 
Va., and load with flour for Cadiz, I believe at $2.75 per barrel. I arrived in 
Alexandria 6th month, 1810; the brig was loaded for Cadiz by William 
Hartshorn, who I found a very kind and pleasant friend; from him and his 
family I received a great deal of attention. After I discharged the cargo at 
Cadiz I chartered the brig to take part of a cargo of sugar and cocoa to go 
up the Mediterranean to Valencia, and then take a cargo of fruit for Philadel- 
phia. I was detained a long time at Valencia waiting for a cargo ; about one 
month on demurrage, and finally loaded at a small port called Denia. I arrived 
safely at Philadelphia in 3d month, 1811, delivered the cargo and sold the 
brig; took passage for Nantucket in the sloop Hancock, Capt. Cromwell Barn- 
ard; found my family all well after an absence of about eleven months. 
The voyage wound up very satisfactorily to myself and the other owners. 

I had not been on the island long when a proposition was made to me to 
take charge of a small brig called the Bonif, go to New York, load her with 
flour, corn, oil, sperm candles, etc., and go to Madeira and dispose of them, 
which I accepted, and soon sailed for New York. I performed the voyage, 
sold the cargo in Madeira, and returned to Nantucket with the proceeds in 
Madeira wine and specie. The voyage was a profitable one, and quite satisfactory 
to all concerned. The Bonif belonged to Zaccheus Hussey & Sons and Peter 
Hussey. As soon as this voyage was wound up, Z. Hussey & Sons proposed 
to me to go to New York, purchase a larger vessel and load her for Madeira. 
I thought that trade might be followed to advantage, and soon left for New 
York and purchased the ship Prudence between us, one-half each from Hicks, 
Jenkins & Co. She was about 243 tons, nearly new, sharp built, carried a 
small cargo, but sailed very fast. Hicks, Jenkins & Co. loaded her for our 
account, and I soon sailed for Madeira, where I sold the cargo, and returned 
to Nantucket in Ist or 2d month, 1812. In a day or two after my arrival the 
weather became very cold, and the harbor closed with ice, and remained solid 

23 



178 MACY GENEALOGY. 

until 3d month 4th. As soon as possible I sailed for New York; after arriving 
there, Hicks, Jenkins & Co. loaded her on owner's account for Lisbon, mostly 
with flour. Arrived at Lisbon, sold the cargo at a very good price, and 
brought home the proceeds in Spanish dollars. I also had quite an amount 
of dollars on freight sufficient to make up $130,000. 

I performed the voyage, I think, in seventy-three days. As soon as I 
delivered the dollars to whom they belonged, and settled my accounts with 
Hicks, Jenkins & Co., I left in the ship for Nantucket, little thinking that I 
was to be the bearer of the first news of the declaration of war by the United 
States against Great Britain, but such was the case. I had no doubt but 
they would have heard of it in some other way; but the mails traveled slowly 
in those days. I came to anchor about midnight at the back of the bar, and 
immediately went on shore in the ship's boat, called on two or three of my 
friends, and gave them the newspapers that contained the news, which papers 
were posted the next morning to give the sad news to the people of the island. 
And sad indeed was it to many of them, as they had a large fleet of whaling 
ships scattered over the wide ocean, and according to all probability certain 
destruction awaited many of them. The captains, of&cers, and many of the 
crews belonged to the island — therefore the hearts of hundreds — were filled 
with sorrow and anxiety, as they would have to wait a long time before it could 
be determined what would be the fate of the absent ships. After breakfitst 
the next morning I walked down to the insurance of&ce, and about the 
wharves, and it made a deep impression on my mind : almost every person 
that I met, his countenance was familiar to me, and all seemed glad to shake 
me by the hand and congratulate me on my safe return home; still the coun- 
tenances of all showed the care and anxiety that was planted there from the 
late sad news so lately brought to the island. I felt a deep sjonpathy for all, 
knowing or believing that each one must be more or less affected. I felt that 
I had been wonderfully blessed, that the arm of Divine Goodness had been 
around me and enabled me to pass through many storms and trials, and 
brought me back safe to my native land and aQiongst my earliest friends and 
acquaintances and to the bosom of my happy family. I remained about 
twenty-four hours at the back of the bar at anchor with the ship, when we 
concluded it would be best to go back to New York, go up the North river 
to Hudson, and lay the ship up in fresh water to prevent worms from boring 
her, as she was not coppered. The next day took my wife with me, and 
sailed for New York ; sailed up the North river to Athens, and laid the ship up 



MACY GENEALOGY. 179 

there. The next 11th month, 1812, I took the ship back to Nantucket, took 
off her spars and rigging, and laid her up until peace was proclaimed in 1815. 
I remained on the island about one year ; I owned a little land, bought a 
horse and cow, and carried on farming on a small scale sufficient with a 
small garden to keep my body and mind moderately exercised, which was 
not unpleasant to me. Being quite out of debt and having sufficient to live 
on for a few years, and owner of one-half of the ship which was laying at 
the wharf, which I often took a look at with a hope that the time would not 
be long before I should be again ploughing the ocean on board of her, and 
being quietly settled down with my family around me, the twelve months 
soon passed away. Few, if any, spent a more happy year than I did. 

In 10th month, 1813, 1 was solicited to take charge of the small brig, 
Boniff, and go to Matomkin, an inlet on the sea-coast on the eastern shore of 
Virginia : the peninsular is very narrow there from the head of the inlet to 
Onamock on the Chesapeake bay, I think only about five miles (this is from 
memory). The plan was to leave the brig there and for me to cross 
over the Chesapeake bay in a small vessel, and go up the Rappahannock to 
Fredericksburg, purchase and procure on freight a cargo of flour, about 
1,000 barrels, and send it over in very small vessels that would carry one or 
two hundred barrels. I was disappointed in getting vessels at Onamock ; I 
could only charter one small schooner that would carry one hundred barrels, 
in which I took passage to Fredericksburg. My funds to purchase the 
cargo were in !6altimore, Md., and the only way I could get them was to 
hire a horse, which I did, and rode there on horse-back, procured my money, 
and rode back to Fredericksburg, purchased some flour, and procured some 
on freight, in all about 1,000 barrels. I then loaded the little schooner that 
I came passenger in, with 100 barrels, and sent her off; she arrived safe. I 
then chartered two more, which took 700 barrels between them ; they left and 
arrived near the inlet on the eastern shore, a little before daylight ; they kept 
very close together for company, and finally got entangled with each other ; 
the wind blowing fresh at the time, they tore their sails, and injured each 
other so much, that when daylight came, a British cruiser saw them, sent 
her boats and took possession of them. The balance of the flour, 200 bar- 
rels, I shipped by a small schooner, Captain Lewis (who owned her) ; he was 
a regular sea captain, a very smart, capable and fearless man. I took passage 
with him ; we went down the Rappahannock, and waited at the mouth of the 
river for a favorable time to cross the bay. During a dark night, the wind 



180 MACY GENEALOGY. 

sprang up from the west, and we started ; but soon after getting out on the 
river, the wind left us. When daylight appeared, we saw some British 
cruisers two or three miles off, and discovered their barges rowing towards us. 
We saw there was no escape with our schooner, so got out our boat and 
concluded to leave, and go on shore. When we were about leaving. Captain 
Lewis determined to remain by his vessel, and try to ransom her. We 
landed on the shore, and soon aft;er the barges took possession of the vessel 
and cargo, and went off with Captain Lewis, solitary and alone ; but as I 
expected, he had the sympathy of his captors and they treated him kindly. 
A lady, with her son and daughter, saw the whole affair, and were on the 
beach when we landed, invited us to her house, and treated us with the 
greatest kindness. I remained there for a number of days, not knowing how 
I should get to the other side of the Chesapeake bay and join the brig, when 
one day a small half-decked oyster boat came and anchored not far from 
where we landed, and Captain Lewis soon made his appearance. Thee can 
judge how glad we were to meet again, as I felt aknost like a prisoner, as I 
knew not how to get to my vessel, as there was no conveyance by land or 
water that I could get, and as Captain Lewis returned, as he left solitary and 
alone, our meeting was very pleasant Well, they made a prize of the schooner 
and cargo, and a prisoner of Captain Lewis : he said they treated him like a 
gentleman on board the man-of-war; but would not ransom his vessel. 
After a few days they made him a present of this oyster boat, paroled him, 
gave him provisions, and allowed him to start off alone as they found him, 
and steer back for the Rappahannock. We waited for a dark night and fair 
wind to cross the Chesapeake, which soon came. We had no compass, but 
Captain Lewis had a hunting watch with a magnetic needle on the face 
showing the north and south points, by which we found our way over. My 
disappointment was great when I learned the fate of my flour (as I have re- 
lated before) ; however, there was still a bright spot ; after it was known that 
it was practicable to send flour to the eastern shore of Virginia, and cart it 
over to Matomkin inlet ; others had started from Richmond, and sent over 
several hundred barrels. I soon engaged a full freight at high rates and 
sailed for Nantucket, where I arrived safely, and to the great joy of the 
inhabitants, I have no doubt, as all were glad to hear of provision being 
landed there, as it was sometimes scarce and very dear. 

I now settled down quiet on the island, and in the spring of 1814, I 
commenced my farming operations again on a rather larger scale. I found it 



MACt GENEALOGY. Igl 

not very profitable, but I was very much interested in it, and it was necessary 
that I should have something to do; I could not be idle. This year we were 
very much annoyed with small privateers in the Vineyard sound, capturing 
our small coasting vessels which made it very difficult to get flour, corn and 
the various necessaries of life from the continent. Prices were very high, and 
scarcely any business doing. The available property on the island was almost 
entirely in sperm and whale oil, and sperm candles, but that was of no use to 
them on the island if they could not by any means get it to Boston, New 
York or Philadelphia, where it was very much wanted, and exchange it for 
provisions. It seemed almost like starving in the midst of plenty. Nantucket 
was almost like a neutral port, as there were no military laws in force; there 
was not a cannon or a musket on the island for war purposes; such a thing as 
fighting to defend themselves was not thought of; they felt that they were at 
the mercy of the enemy, knowing that one small vessel well armed and 
manned might come into the harbor and destroy the town. The difficulty of 
getting sufficient provisions upon the island, to feel certain of having enough 
to last 7,000 or 8,000 people through the coming winter, was a source of 
great uneasiness with many. It was concluded to call a town meeting, and 
appoint a committee to go to Washington and represent to the heads of the 
government the very unhappy situation the inhabitants were in, and the 
likelihood of their being distressed for the want of provisions. The committee 
were treated with kindness, and told that government could do nothing for 
them officially ; but told them, or perhaps gave them liberty, to go on board 
Admiral Hotham's ship of war (then laying off Stonington harbor), with a 
flag of truce as a committee from the town of Nantucket, and ask the 
admiral for permission from him to allow three coasting vessels, one for 
Philadelphia, one for New York, and one for Boston, to take on board oil and 
candles, and go to those ports solely to buy provisions for the inhabitants of 
the island. The committee were received kindly by Admiral Hotham; he 
granted their request, and gave written passes for three vessels, and directing 
all the English war vessels to allow them to pass unmolested. Our govern- 
ment could not legalize it, though fully understanding it. It was necessary, 
therefore, to show the passes to English cruisers only : had our war vessels 
discovered such a pass they would have made a prize at once. It gave great 
relief, and the privilege I believe was not abused in the least degree. I 
think it was very kind in the admiral, as nothing was asked or given for the 
privilege. I was offered the command of one of the vessels to run to 



182 MACY GENEALOGY. 

Philadelphia, which I accepted, and took charge of the schooner Ruby, about 
75 tons. I now gave up my fsinning operations, sold my horse and all my 
farming utensils, well satisfied with the benefits I had received, both in body 
and mind. The schooner was loaded with oil and sperm candles, and I 
sailed fi^r Philadelphia in 10th month, 1814, and returned with a load of 
provisions ; loaded and sailed again 1st month 5th, 1815 ; had much difficulty 
in getting up to Philadelphia on account of the ice, and after arriving there 
was fix>zen up solid for two months. While at Philadelphia peace took place. 
While making the two trips I was boarded a number of times by British men- 
of-war, always treated politely, and the admiral's pass fuUy respected. 

As soon as the Ruby was discharged at Nantucket, we commenced fitting 
and rigging the ship Prudence, and in four months I sailed for New York, 
where she was sold for about the same price that we paid for her. I then 
went over to Hanover in Boston bay, for the purpose of buying a new ship. 
I looked at the ship Edward, 346 tons, new and nearly rigged ; the builders said 
they intended sending her to New York, consigned to Hicks, Jenkins k Co. 
for sale. In 7th mo., 1815, 1 purchased one-half of the Edward from them, 
they holding the other half. Business was very dull, and the ship lay idle 
for some time, but in 11th month I loaded and sailed for Liverpool, and con- 
tinued following the Liverpool trade steadily until 1818. Li 2d month, 1818, 
I sailed for Calcutta under a charter to stop at Madras, going and returning, 
and return to Philadelphia, and discharge the principal part of her csfrgo. 
I arrived in Calcutta 6th month, 1818, the next year after the Asiatic cholera 
raged so badly in the East Indies, and was then so fatal there. Two of my sea- 
men were attacked with it, one died in 12 @ 15 hours, the other recovered. 
This was the first knowledge I ever had of Asiatic cholera ; it traveled north 
fi-om there to St Petersburg in Russia, thence to England, then to Canada, and 
then to New York in 1832. It was fourteen years in traveling that circuit 
The first case that I recollect in this country was in Cherry street, J^ew York, 
I remained in the city during the time that it prevailed there: I believe I 
never missed a day during the entire season, but that I went to my place of 
business. I felt that in attending to my business I was in the line of my duty, 
and I think that has much to do with our feelings; when we feel that we are 
moving along in the right path we fear not I enjoyed good health, as well 
as my family who remained home with me. I was detained in Calcutta almost 
five months, nearly one of which was on demurrage. I arrived in Philadel- 
phia, in 3d mouth, 1819, and discharged the bulk of my cargo ; I collected the 



MACY GENEALOGY. 183 

freight, and remitted it to New York. Being well acquainted in Philadelphia 
I did not need the assistance of any commission house, but transacted all the 
business of the ship myself; then went to New York, and discharged the 
balance of the cargo. After remaining there some time, took in a cargo 
for Cadiz, considerable part being on owner's account, which I sold at a fair 
profit and returned to New York with a cargo of salt. Remained in New 
York but a short time, when I loaded again for Cadiz, in the spring of 1820 ; 
the cargo as before being mostly on owner's account, which I sold at a good 
profit, except 240 barrels of pork, which I could not sell except at considerable 
loss. I therefore concluded to keep that on board and stop at Madeira, which 
I did, and sold it to John Howard March & Co. at a very good price and 
with very little detention. Richard Mead and his son Richard were pas- 
sengers with me this voyage from Cadiz. Richard Mead was U. S. consul, 
and a merchant of very high standing in Cadiz. I think I was at Madeira, in 
7th month, 1820. 

During my absence on the voyage to the East Indies, my very dear friend 
and thy grandfather Silvanus F. Jenkins, and one of the principal partners 
of Hicks, Jenkins & Co., passed away from this transitory world to another 
and a happier state I have no doubt. This loss was very great to all who 
knew him ; it was a very severe trial to me, as I did not hear that he was gone 
until I returned to Philadelphia. We had been intimately acquainted from 
early life, and had been transacting business together for several years, and a 
strong attachment existed between us ; we felt like brothers. The firm was 
dissolved, and the business was continued by Samuel Hicks. Soon after this 
voyage was wound up we concluded to build a new ship, and contracted 
with Brown & Bell to build one of about 400 tons. This was the first ship 
they built after they commenced business, and was one of the strongest and 
best built ships of that day. She was launched in 3d month, 1821, fitted and 
rigged immediately, and was called the Orbit. Her first voyage was to Liver- 
pool and back to New York, and was a very profitable one. I continued in 
charge of the Orbit, running steadily in the Liverpool trade until the summer 
of 1823, when we sold her. Samuel Hicks and myself then bought a new 
ship on the stocks, being built by Noah Brown. She was launched in 7th 
month, 1823, and called the Diamond. She was 501 tons, and I sailed in her 
for Liverpool, in 8th month, 1823, and continued in command of her in the 
Liverpool trade for over one year. In 1824 we purchased another ship on 
the stocks being built by James Morgan, about 500 tons. She was launched 



184 MACY GENEALOGY. 

in 11th month, 1824, and called the Isaac Hicks. I took charge of her, and 
sailed for Charleston, S. C, and loaded there for Liverpool. My brother 
Henry took charge of the ship Diamond, and sailed from New York for 
Liverpool late in 1824. The ship and most of the crew with himself were 
lost in Cardigan bay. It was a very sad and melancholy loss ; he was a yonng 
man, and this the first ship that he had commanded. One-half of the ship 
belonged to Samuel Hicks and the other half to myself; she was insured for 
about what she cost, but no insurance on her freight, therefore the loss of 
property was considerable. I ran the Isaac Hicks about one year in the 
Liverpool trade. James Morgan then had another new ship on the stocks, 
about 550 tons, which we purchased, that is Samuel Hicks & Sons and myself. 
She was launched in the autumn of 1825, and was named after thy grand- 
father, Silvanus Jenkins. I took command of her, and sailed for Charleston, 
S. C, in 11th month, 1825, and loaded with cottx)n for Liverpool. She 
was considered quite a large ship in that day, and I noticed one of the papers 
mentioned that the ship Silvanus Jenkins had cleared for Liverpool with 
1,800 bales of cotton, being the largest cargo ever taken away from Charles- 
ton, in an American ship. I continued in charge of the S. Jenkins steadily 
in the Liverpool trade until 11th month, 1827. Before leaving New York 
on the last voyage, I concluded not to follow the sea any more. During my 
stay in Liverpool I made some arrangements about commencing business in 
New York on my return. The ship was now running as one of the line of 
Liverpool packets. I had a very good freight home, and as many passengers 
in the cabin as I could accommodate, among them was Albert Gallatin, his 
wife and family (the American minister to Great Britain), Joshua Bates one 

of the hou^e of Baring Bros. & Co., of London, with his family, Gear, 

a branch of Baring Bros. & Co.'s house in Liverpool, and many others. I 
merely mention a few names to show that the Silvanus Jenkins was con- 
sidered a good safe ship to cross the ocean in ; the passage was one of the 
most boisterous ones that I ever made ; but we were favored to arrive safe* 
without any serious accident. I now felt that the right time had come for 
me to quit the sea ; I felt that scarcely anything would induce me to under- 
take another voyage. The ship was discharged, and the voyage wound up, 
when I sold my half ot her and prepared to start in a new business. I was 
then between forty-two and forty-three years of age; I had been upwards of 
twenty-two years in command of various ships and other vessels. I never lost 
a vessel that I had command of, nor did I ever meet with any serious shipwreck. 



MACY GENEALOGY. 185 

My heart was filled with thankfulness to my Heavenly Father, by whose divine 
assistance I had been guided safely through many storms and dangers while 
traversing the mighty ocean, and wonderfully preserved when breathing the 
pestilential air of a foreign climate; I felt blessings had been showered down 
upon me without number. 

On the first of the year 1828, I commenced the shipping and commission 
business in the city of New York, under the firm of Josiah Macy & Son ; 
my son William H. having joined me as a partner. After my son Charles 
became of age he was admitted as a partner, and the firm was changed to 
Josiah Macy & Sons. My other three sons were admitted as they became of 
age ; the firm remaining the same for about twenty-five years. In 1853, 1 
retired from business in K'ew York, feeling that I had as much property as 
was necessary for my comfort and happiness, leaving the business in a sound 
and prosperous condition with my eons and some of my grandsons, who 
have continued along prosperously under the firm of Josiah Macy's Sons. 
In 1853, I purchased a farm near the town of Rye, Westchester Co., N. Y., 
a pleasant situation overlooking Long Island sound, and when evening comes 
I have the cheerful view of the lights from five light-houses which are placed 
there to guide the mariner on his way. No one can scarcely know the 
pleasure of the sight of one of these, except the anxious sailor who watches 
steadily, and finally discovers the light in time to guide his ship through 
a dark, tempestuous night into a safe and quiet harbor, where he can cast 
anchor and remain fearless of all storms. . Since I left business in New York 
I have passed most of my time on my farm : the quiet rural retirement has 
been very congenial to my feelings ; it is what I often thought of in years that 
are gone. I feel that it is a great blessing that I have been permitted to enjoy 
it so long. With ardent desires for thy present and future happiness, 

I remain thy affectionate grandfather, 

Josiah Macy.

Henry Macy (215), commanded the ship Diamond in 1824. Sailed from New 
York in December of that year for Liverpool, England. In January, 1825, 
ihey neared the coast of England, and made the land, as ihey supposed, off 
Holyhead, the wind blowing a gale at the time from the northward, weather 
thick and stormy. After standing to the eastward far enough to clear what 
ihey thought was Holyhead, kept the ship off for Liverpool. But when too 
late they discovered they had mistaken Bardsey island, or the land about 
this headland, for Holyhead, and had been running into Cardigan bay, where 
the ship was lost with all on board, except Alexander Russel, second officer, 
and six of the crew.

•%• 



230 MACY GENEALOGY. 

From the Nantucket Inquirer of October 2, 1857. 

Hon. John B. Macy. — By the recent destruction of the steamer Niagara 
this gentlemen is without doubt lost There is not probably a man that could 
have been taken away in the United States, who had so great a personal ac- 
quaintance with the people of this country as Mr. Macy, and no one whose 
loss will be more lamented. Born of one of the first fiimilies of Nantucket, 
at a very early age he commenced mercantile pursuits, in which he showed 
the remarkable energy and perseverance which, with ordinary fortune, would 
have retained him in the place of his nativity, and been the means of extend- 
ing the business of the people to an extent beyond that of any other 
whaling community. His first business proved disastrous, and at the early 
age of 26, after having been a leading merchant and man for years, he was 
compelled to resign his business here and go to New York. 

After some few years he became one of the forwarding house of Smith & 
Macy, in Bufialo, and afterward an extensive purchaser of lands in that sec- 
tion of the country. The city of Toledo, and other cities of the West, were 
purchased a wilderness, and commenced by his energy and perseverance 
alone. After amassing a princely fortune, the decline of the Western land 
speculation, in which he was deeply interested, reduced his means considera- 
bly, but not so but what he could make another trial ; and with the residue, 
he commenced the purchase of lands in Wisconsin, and began founding 
other towns, which have since grown up into thriving cities. His estates 
have become increased, and he leaves a large and finely invested property in 
Fond du Lac, one of the principal places in that growing state, from which 
he was chosen a member of congress a few years since. 

His great robust frame, his tall, gentlemanly appearance, his courteous 
afi&bility, his fine eye and intelligent face, his benevolent expression and 
over generous heart, made him warm friends wherever he went, and gave 
him great influence with all he happened to meet. His learning, which was 
varied and good, his great share of common sense, his laudable ambition 
and commanding address, connected hira closely with the leading men of 
the country, so that hardly a president, a secretary, a senator or a con- 
gressman of the country did not reckon " Macy " among his friends when he 
made his dinner party or levee. Equally liked by the politicians of all shades, 
traveling through every part of the Union continually, remembering every- 
body he had ever met before, and having a joke and a kind word for each, 



MACY GENEALOGY. 231 

he made all his personal friends, and repaid them hy endeavoring to further 
their interests at any expanse of lahor to himself. The feeling of envy never 
entered his heart, Selfishness was a perfect stranger to him. He liket to 
be prosperous himself, but was anxious for everybody else to be so too. 

If any reader of this slight notice remembers visiting him at Buffalo years 
ago or at Fond du Lac more recently, they will remember what an extensive and 
open house he kept, where everybody was made so welcome that it became 
a home in a single day. Visitors by the score came to it, as to a hotel, to 
renew their friendship, and were always so kindly received. Those who 
spoke well of him and those who spoke ill — an envious few — all partook 
of his bounty, and had it proffered with the same good will. 
* Just in the meridian of manhood he has been taken away, and Nantucket, 
as well as Wisconsin, has lost a son she may well be proud of. We sym- 
pathize with his afflicted family, and wish it could have been so ordered that 
he might have remained for many years.

Mary S. Macy (1032), married Valentine Hussey, Jr., son of Valentine

For some years during a flourishing period of the whaling business at 
Nantucket, there might be daily seen, morning and evening, in the busiest 
thoroughfare, two seemingly inseparable merchants on their way from and 
to their neighboring homes. These were Thomas and Peter Macy, the first 
and the third son of Obod Macy, the historian of the island. This mark of 
fraternal attachment was an hereditary characteristic. They were literally 
stepping in the tracks of their fether and uncle, alike inseparable. 

In common with other members of the family, Thomas was nurtured in 
the strictest line of Quakerism, and though the society, at this period, was 
foremost in the education of their children, the standard of literary instruc- 
tion was low, except in those departments directly applicable to the business 
of the place. In Thomas Macy's experience, much valuable time wus lost 
by the persistent employment of a teacher whose disposition was illy adapted 
to the tenderness of his youth, and it was only aiter he had reached manhood 
that he gave attention to English grammar. According to the habits of that 
period of giving to boys a knowledge of some mechanical branch connected 
with the whaling navigation, Thomas learned that of a blacksmith, which 
business, in connection with a brass foundry, he carried on till interrupted 
by the war of 1812. A few years after peace, he was appointed postmaster 
by President Munroe. The duties of this office, he faithfully performed for 
eleven years, and his marked official urbanity is proverbial at the present day. 
An early victim to the policy inaugurated by President Jackson, he engaged 
in the importation and manu&cture of sperm oil, till within a year of his 
death. He was active in the current politics of his time, and had a decided 
taste for public speaking, a gift which be chiefly exercised in the promotion 
of the interest of others, having himself little or no desire for office. He was 
very happy as a presiding officer, in which service he was much employed by 
the town meetings and other local assemblies. He was through life religi- 



248 MACY GENEALOGY. 

ously inclined, and an active, exemplary member of the society of Friends. 
He was three times married, and survived the last wife for some years. 

He was happy in his family, and at a ripe age passed away suddenly, 
having retired in usual health, except an infirmity of no alarm : life in the 
course of the night had become extinct, leaving, however, an expression of 
great composure, strikingly indicating that no struggle accompanied the 
change.

Peter Macy inherited in a remarkable degree, not only the firm integrity 
of his &ther, the historian of the island , but the proverbial amiableness of 
his mother. His education, though somewhat better than the average of 
that day, was limited to the English branches, and such knowledge of

250 MACY GENEALOGY. 

mathematics as the business of the island required. According to the habit 
and manifest interest of the community, of giving to the young men a prac- 
tical knowledge of some mechanical art, Peter learned the cooper's trade, 
and after the termination of the war of 1812 he pursued it till it was too 
evident, that his constitution was not equal to a calling of so severe a cha- 
racter. He subsequently became a teacher, and at one time an auctioneer, 
and finally connected himself with his brother Thomas in the whaling 
business, in which he was in a fair degree successful ; but the seeds of a fiital 
disease had early taken root, and gradually destroyed his energies, and, after 
a painfiil period, terminated a life marked with every excellence. 

With but little desire for notoriety, his good sense and well balanced mind 
often subjected him to the public demands, and his services were always 
highly appreciated. 

He was twice married, and his last wife has long survived him with an 
amiable family. He was universally esteemed through life, and equally 
lamented in death. Those who knew him best loved him most By birth 
he was a member of the Society of Friends, and he never departed from the 
profession, of which he was at all times an ornament.

Daniel P. Macy (475), received a liberal school education, being naturally 
quick to learn, and very studious. Upon leaving school, he learned the 
cooper's trade with his brother Peter; but he soon found it was injurious to 
his health, his constitution being too slight to withstand such hard manual 
labor. He then tried the coasting trade between Nantucket and Providence, 
R. I., which he followed for two years. Finding this course of life not 
agreeable to his taste, he abandoned it and settled in Hartford, Conn., in

1827, as a commission merchant, where he resided until 1832, when he re- 
moved to Philadelphia. His health commenced to fail, and in 1837 his 
friends manifested much uneasiness at the alarming symptoms of his cough 
and general indisposition, that he abandoned business, and in the fall set sail 
for New Orleans, to endeavor to recuperate his failing strength; but con- 
sumption soon carried him to his grave.

William H, Macy (568), removed from Nantucket to New York, in March, 
1823. In the following month he entered the counting room of Samuel Hicks, 
154 South street, where he remained until he became of age. He then com- 
menced business on his own account as a commission merchant, and took an 
office at 228 Front street. On the 1st of January, 1828, his father joined him 
under the firm of Josiah Macy & Son. In 1834, he was elected a member 
of tiie chamber of commerce, and some years later was elected vice president 
of that body. In 1845, he was elected director of the Leather Manufacturers 
Bank, and on the 5th of March, 1855, he was elected president of the 



270 MACY GENEALOGY. 

bank, which position he still holds. The original charter of the bank expired 
on the Ist of June, 1862, and on the SOth of December, 1862, the directors 
of the bank invited him to dine with them at Delmonico's. They extended 
their invitation to four or five others not members of the board, amongst 
that number was the writer. After doing full justice to a very elegant 
repast, a suberb silver vase was placed at the head of the table and presented 
to him by his codirectors as a token of their esteem and friendslup. A 
handsome testimonial on parchment signed by the directors accompanied it. 
On the 12th of January; 1848, he was elected a trustee of the Seaman's Bank 
for Savings. In 1851, he was elected vice president, and on the 3d of Jnne, 
1863, was elected president of that institution, which position he resigned 
September 5, 1867, deeming it advisable, in conjunction with the other 
directors, to have a president who would devote his entire time to the bank 
and be compensated for it, more particularly as the business of the bank bad 
become so large — the deposit account amounting to over nine millions of 
dollars. From the organization of the bank in 1829, up to this time, the 
president, secretary and trustees had never received any pecuniary compensa- 
tion for their services, the only compensation being the mental satis&ction 
of aiding and assisting the poor to save and deposit their hard earnings 
where they would be not only secure but where they could receive a feir 
interest on their money. Upon accepting his resignation the board of trustees 
passed resolutions which were handsomely engrossed on parchment and 
presented to him. He holds the position of vice president of the United 
States Trust Co., and is connected with the management of several 
insurance and rail road corporations. He has been executor of many estates, 
selected by his friends for his known high sense of honor, integrity and 
business capacity. Photo-lithographs of the testimonials from the Leather 
Manufacturers Bank, and Seamans Bank for Savings are annexed, and his 
family prize them, for they are expressions not of etiquette, but of feelings 
of high esteem and appreciation from his friends in the commercial world. 
In the domestic circle we could say more — much more than his business 
acquaintances — but for obvious reasons the writer must leave the social or 
domestic part of his biography for others; suffice it to say that he has bound 
his children to him by all the ties of parent and friend.

Charles A. Macy was bom on the island of Nantucket, where he remained 
at school until he was about fourteen years of age, with the exception of a 
short time at Providence boarding school, when he commenced learning 
the trade of block and pump making, at which he worked about sixteen 
months. He removed from the island with his parents to New York in the 
spring of 1823. In less than a week after his arrival in New York, he 
commenced as a clerk in the counting house of Isaac "Wright & Son, who 
were largely engaged in the shipping business, being part owners and agents 
for the Old Line of Liverpool Packets consisting of eight ships; besides 
which they owned two other ships engaged in transient service. He con- 
tinued with them until January 1, 1831, when he became a partner with his 
father, and brother, William II., who were in the shipping and general 
commission business. lie commenced housekeeping in the spring of that 
vear on Ilicks street, Brooklvn, which was at that time a mere villasre, 
containing only about 16,000 inhabitants. He lived there about two years, 
when lie removed to Henrv street. New York. In Januarv, he left the firm 
of Josiah Macy & Sons, and became a member of the firm of Corlies, 
Haydock & Co., in the auction and commission business, the senior member 
of said firm, Benjamin Corlies, being his father-in-law. In 1844, he removed 
with his family to Newburgh, on the west bank of the Hudson river, but 
continued in active business in the citv; after residinor thereabout three 
years he removed to New York, and hired a place of about seven acres 
corner of 58th street and 8th avenue, occupying it one year whilst building^ 
a house on 21st street, between Broadwav and 4th avenue, into which he 
moved in the sprincr of 1848. He resided there three vears when he removed

that he removed from the city for the benefit of his wife whose health was ex- 
ceedingly delicate. In January, 1851, he retired from the firm of Corlies, 
Haydock & Co., and formed a new copartnership for the sale of foreign and 
domestic dry goods, on commission, under the firm of Macy, Stanton & Co., 
in which he remained only a few years when he quit merchandizing. 

In the spring of 1855, in company with a few others, he organized the 
New York County Bank of New York, with a capital of $200,000, of which 
he took the presidency, and retained the same until the early part of the year 
1856, when the Park Bank was organized with a capital of $2,000,000. 
Being invited to take the cashiership of that institution, he did so with 
Reuben W. Howes as president, in which capacity they both acted until the 
summer of 1863, when they resigned and commenced the banking business 
on their own account, under the firm of Howes & Macy at No. 30 Wall 
street. In the summer of 1857, he disposed of his place at Poughkeepsie and 
removed once more to New York. He is a man with whom it is always 
pleasant to be associated. He is noted by all who know him for his upright- 
ness, liberality and urbanity. He has held many positions of honor and trust. 
In 1832, when but twenty-four years of age, he was executor to the estate of 
his friend, Archibald Campbell, which amounted to about $60,000. In 1856, 
his old friend, Jasper Grosvenor, a well known citizen of New York, died, 
leaving him one of his executors to his estate, which amounted to over one 
million of dollars. He has held many minor executorships and positions of 
trust.

WHAT IS MAN! 

Tossed with sorrow, grief and trouble. 
On life's ocean, dark and drear; 

Is man but &n empt; bubble, 
Soon to burst and disappear J 

Is be but a transient flower, 

Opened by the breath of Ma; — 

Blooming, smiling for an hour, 
Destined eoon to pass awayf 

la he but ordained to flourish, 

In this world of care and grief — 

Doomed to fade and fall and perish, * 
Like the withered Autumn leaf ? 

No, though like the leaf that's driven, 
Bj the rude Autumnal blast; 

Though the waves of dark oblivion, 
Soon shall close above his breast. 



Yet we have assurance given, 

That the righteous have a home ; 

'Where, eternally in Heaven, 
Man forever more shall bloom.

Alexander Macy (939), at the age of sixteen, commenced going to sea, 
sailing from his birthplace Nantucket. During the war of 1812, he sailed in 
the letter of marque Spartan, commanded by Captain Gardner of Nantucket, 
where most of the crew belonged. In 1814, he was offered the position of 
chief mate of a vessel, so he left the letter of marque to assume bis new 
duties. But he was not permitted to enjoy his new position long, for they 
had hardly cleared the coast before they were taken by a British man-of-war. 
After his release he remained on shore until peace was proclaimed, when he 
made a voyage in the ship Tarquiu, after which was chief mate of the ship 
General Lincoln, when she was lost in the terrible gale of September, 1818, 
which hurled destraction in its course to so many noble ships, and buried so 
many poor fellows in the mighty deep. He was taken off the ship, and 
landed in the city of Now York, the latter part of October. In December, 
he took charge of the ship Columbus of Boston, and in January, 1819, sailed 
for Havre, where he put her under French colors, and fitted her for a whaling 
voyage, which proved very succes^jful. On bis return to Ilavre, be laid the 
ship up and returned to Boston ; soon after which he took charge of the sliip 
Palladium, belonging to the same owner, and in 1821, sailed for the I'acJfic 
ocean, on a sperm whale voyage. From 1825 to 1834, he made several 
successful voyages to the Pacific, and retired from the sea in the latter 



MACY GENEALOGY. 355 

year, having followed the sea twenty-eight years. Was president of the 
Nantucket Savings Bank for several years, but resigned in 1861, it being too 
much care for him. He has always been considered a very able and exem- 
plary ship master and citizen.

Seth W. Macy (943), was born on the island of Nantucket, and when 
eighteen years of age he concluded to follow in the footsteps of many of his 
predecessors, and pursue a seafaring life. At the age of twenty-three he 
commanded a ship, and continued in that business twenty-seven years, re- 
tiring at the age of forty-four. Whilst commanding ships he visited many 
parts of Europe, South America, and the West Indies, was in one of the first 



356 MACY GENEALOGY. 

American ships that passed through the great canal from New Deep to 
the city of Amsterdam. He was at Buenos Ayres when war was declared 
between that place and Monte Video, for the supremacy of the Rio de la Plata, 
was detained there several months, being both blockaded and embargoed, and 
witnessed the first naval battle fought by them. In the year 1850, he was 
elected to the state senate of Rhode island, having made Newport his home 
since 1831. In 1852, he resigned and accepted a seat in the town council. 
In 1854, the town having become a city, he was elected a member of the 
board of aldermen. In 1856, he was again elected a member of the legislature 
without much opposition, but resigned the following year, having become 
somewhat tired of public life. In 1861, he was induced to accept the position 
of collector of the port of Newport, which he still retains. He is a gentleman 
of a very high sense of honor and integrity, and noted during his business 
career of being scrupulously honest. The author distinctly remembers, and 
records it with much gratification, when a clerk in New York, he frequently 
heard it remarked, that it was always well to purchase cargoes of crude sperm 
oil from Seth W. Macy upon his own representations as to quality, as it 
would always turn out in favor of the purchaser ; he was so fearfiil of repre- 
senting it too good that he would generally undervalue it.

Mary E. Palmer was daughter of John E. Palmer and Elizabeth Ward, 
bom at Mansfield, Ohio, Nov. 24, 1827 ; married at Mansfield, Ohio, Oct. 4, 
1851 ; resides at Henrietta, Ohio. 

Elihu Macy (977), having the misfortune to lose his parents when quite 
young, his early training was left to relatives. He has furnished a very 
graphic sketch of his life, but writes that he would rather have made no 
mention of himself, having little ambition for the praise of men, it suffices 
him to know that his " record is on high.'' "But as he anticipates much 
pleasure in the work for which this is intended, and knowing that the inter- 
est of that work depends in a measure upon ^uch contributions, he refuses 
not to add his mite." I purpose giving his own language, commencing when 
he launched out into the world, as his record shows, without a compass. 

" At the age of eighteen I had never known the want of a home, but I had 
very much needed some one to develop my better nature — some one to love 
and advise me. But wanting this, what could have been expectedj but that 
the evils of my nature should take deep root, and grow rampant. At this 
age I was deprived of a home. I shall never forget the first day I wandered 
friendless and homeless in the world. I was poorly prepared for it I knew 
but little of the ways of the world, and was precipitated upon it without 
knowing where I should find my first day's employment, or my first night's 
lodging. How this was brought about cannot well be told without being 
more personal than I wish to be at present. But I can say that I have never 
been able to see the justice of it, or to blame myself for it. As I wandered, 
not knowing or caring where I went, I wished in my heart that I might lie 
down and die. My brothers were scattered and strangers to me, and my 
other kindred more distant still than strangers. I realized then, as never 
before that I was an orphan, and friendless. I was not long in finding em- 
ployment, and at pretty good wages, which revived my spirits, and begat a 
little feeling of independence; and I resolved not to be disheartened by 
any surmountable difficulty. I was thrown into almost all kinds of associa- 
tions but good, and I shall not be judged more depraved than the common- 
ality of men, if I say that my moral movement was a retrograde. For two 
years my downward course was rapid. I not only contracted pernicious 
habits, but imbibed more pernicious sentiments. And why shouldn't I? 
Without the restraints of religious, or even moral associations, to check my 
downward course, and without the constraints of love to lift me up, or raise 



366 3L\CY GE^'EALOGY. 

me higlier, what could have been expected, but moral sinking? It is easy, 
says one, ' to be good where there is no temptation to evil.' But it is much 
easier to be bad where there is no incentive to virtue. But I did not 
continue this course long. lie who ordered all my steps, had prepared a 
school for my soul, where I was to be taught the rudiments of a higher life. 
Up to this time, I had scarcely known a sick day in my life. I had not 
thought that such a thing was likely to occur with me, or that any such con- 
tingency needed to be provided for. I lived careless of the future, only 
providing for present wants and pleasures. But a new experience was before 
me. In the spring of 1842, and the twenty-first year of my age, I was taken 
suddenly, and severely sick. For a time the probabilities of life and' of death 
seemed to balance each other. With one stroke, mj' physical, and soul 
strength was taken away. My fortifications were worthless, and I saw my 
soul exposed to the sword of retributive justice. I was wretched indeed : 
homeless, helpless, and friendless. 0, that word ! It lay like an incubus 
on my soul. I felt sure I had no friend on earth, and thought I had none 
above. I was then dependent upon the charities of what I had many times 
pronounced a heartless world. It was a severe school; but I needed it. I was 
provided for. My own parents, if they had been living, could have done no 
more for me. And this kindness was from those who were under no obliga- 
tions to me, more than those imposed by common Christianity: for my 
benefactors were Christian peoi)le — a class against which I had been severe. 
I saw my wrong, and I heartily repented. I thought better of Christians, 
and of the world ; better of Ilim who made and governs all things ; and more 
diminutivelv of mvself. The disease took a favorable turn, and I recovered, 
a more thoughtful, and I believe, a better boy. From that time I had an 
object in life above selfish gratification. I wished no longer to be a curse 
to the \^orld, but that the world might be made better for my having lived 
in it. I began to inquire after the true principles of life and happiness. I 
tried to divest myself of all prejudice, and inquire only at the oracles of God. 
I believed that the scriptures were given by inspiration of God, and were 
profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness, 
and I wanted to be governed by them alone, and without reserve. I did not 
consult my own choice of doctrines, nor the opinions of men. I found it 
difficult, for a long time, to make my religious views harmonize with any 
religious sect that I knew. And I never yet have found any with which T 
could perfectly agree. My parents, and all of my connections, so far as I 



MACY GENEALOGY. 367 

knew, were, in sentiments, followers of Elias Hicks ; consequently, my pre- 
possessions were in their favor. Yet I could not adopt their tenets altogether, 
though I loved their simple form of worship, their plain address, and plain 
attire ; their sterling morality, and not less, their unqualified opposition to 
human oppression. This was a principle that seemed hereditary with me. 
I acknowledge it prepossessed my mind. But my religious researches did not 
weaken it. So strongly did I abhor ease or affluence acquired at the expense 
of another, that it was a principle with me from a boy, not to allow another 
to wait upon me when I could w^ait upon myself. It was my choice to serve 
rather than be served. After my sickness and recovery, my sole object was 
to be useful to the world. I felt an irresistible conviction that I was to 
preach the gospel. But I was poor and uneducated, and I felt that there was 
much to be done before I could be a successful or acceptable preacher. The 
conviction that I was called to preach was long kept a secret in my own 
heart ; and I applied myself to mental and spiritual culture. 

" I was naturally possessed of some mechanical ingenuity, and this was the 
only talent that had been cultivated. I could then command good wages in 
the factory. A few months' labor procured the means for a few months' 
schooling. I commenced study in the Collegiate Institute in Brockport, 
N. Y., in the fall of 1842. I denied myself everything but the absolute neces- 
sities, and interrupted my studies only to procure the means to purchase 
necessary clothing, books, and pay tuition. If I got this much, I felt free to 
commence a term, and without it I could not. I boarded myself, and pro- 
cured supplies as best I could out of school hours. I did not know how to 
economize, although I very much desired to do so ; consequently I did not 
always make the best use of time and means. At the expiration of three 
years, I had accomplished only two years' schooling. During this time I had 
united with the regular Baptist church in Brockport. In the summer of 1846, 
circumstances arose which made it undesirable for me to continue my relation 
with that church. A history of those circumstances is too lengthy for insertion 
here. In August, 1845, 1 left Brockport with great depression of spirits. I 
started westward without any particular destination in mind. I landed in 
Cleveland, Ohio, and obtained employment in a factory near that city. The 
following winter I taught a district school in Columbia, and in the spring 
commenced studying in Oberlin. I remained here but one season. The next 
tbree years my principal employment was teaching: then a part of two years 
was spent in the seminary in Norwalk, Ohio. This finished my schooling. I

was then in my twenty-ninth year, and began to feel that it was time I gaTO 
myself up wholly to the work I had had in view for nine years. I was con- 
nected at that time with the Baptist church in "West Windsor, Richmond 
county, Ohio. Of this church I received a license to preach, but did not receive 
a pastorate for four years. My dependence was teaching. I preached occa- 
sionally at such times and places, as the Spirit and providence of God directed. 
" On the fourth day of October, 1861, 1 married Mary Elizabeth Palmer, 
daughter of John E. and Elizabeth W. Palmer, who resided near Mansfield. 
November, 1855, I accepted a call to settle with the church in Henrietta, 
Ohio, as their pastor. This relation has continued uninterruptedly for the 
past twelve years. How much longer it will continue is known only to HiTn 
who has appointed me the work, and at whose bidding I go. E. M. "

into mercantile pursuits, which he followed until the commencement of the

him, and as it contains so many matters of general interest, I give it in fiill 
instead of extractinsr from it. I have received manv letters from officers of 
the army, speaking in ven^ high terms of the character and bravery of Gren. 
Macy, from which I make some extracts as well as furnishing extracts finom 
oflScial reports. 

The Twentieth Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers was at this juncture, 
August, 18G1, forming under the lead of Colonel W. Raymond Lee, a 
graduate of "West Point, and a gentleman well known in and out of Boston, 
as an energetic and able man. Colonel Lee obtained from Governor 
Andrew the privilege of nominating his own officers. Among these was 
the subject of this memoir, who was ranked second in his class of first 
lieutenants. Many of the officers who left the state with the re^meut 
subsequently attained distinction in the service, and besides General Macy, 
and Colonel Lee, who was promoted to be a brigadier general by brevet, 
we may mention Generals Palfrey, Bartlett,' Peirson, Abbott, Hallowell, 
Whittier and Crowninshield. 

The first permanent camp of the Twentieth, was near Poolesville, Mary- 
land, and was called Camp Benson. Here, in the daily routine of camp duty, 
the regiment acquired that discipline for which it was always noted in the 
army. Picketing the river, occasionally with an alarm as to the enemy's in- 
tentions, was all the active duty required. The monotony of this life was, 
however, ere long rudely and terribly broken by the unfortunate battle of Balls 
Bluft". Ourlimitsdonot permit us to go at length into a description of this action. 
Suffice it to say, that a more injudicious scheme was hardly ever attempted, 
and that no scheme was ever can-led out with less skill. The Twentieth, on 
Monday afternoon, the 21st of October, 1861, found themselves forming part 
of a line of battle, consistmg of about 1,800 men, portions of different regi- 
ments, posted without advantage in open ground, the Potomac in their rear, 
no sufficient means for recrossing, at least an equal enemy in their front, 
and no competent officer in command. The enemy, concealed by the wood, 
kept up a murderous fire ; and, so far as could be supposed, suffered but little. 
Xo defenses of any kind were thrown up by our troops, no practical movements 
whatever attempted ; even the two guns were so posted as to be worse than 
useless. The troops on both sides were green ; our men, however, being in 
an enemy's country, and apparently exposed to defeat without an object, at la«t 
allowed the enemy — who had the immense advantages of fighting on their 
own soil, and also of a definite plan, that of driving the invaders into the 



MACY GENEALOGY. 3g3 

river — to approach through the woods which skirted our leftflank. Our line 
at last gave way at all points, but the Twentieth sturdily stood to the last; 
and Eevere, Bartlett, Macy, and a few of the brave men strove in gallant but 
ineffectual attempts to drive back the pursuing foe. Night at last closed the 
action. Colonel Lee, Major Revere, Adjutant Pierson, and others were 
taken prisoners : three captains were severely wounded, one lieutenant 
mortally ; several other officers slightly wounded, and the rank and file had 
lost heavily. Some of those, who were left with Bartlett at their head, got 
across the river in a boat. Others swam the river, and among them Lieu- 
tenant Macy. With two officers, Captain Babo, and Lieutenant Wesselhoeft, 
and two soldiers of his company, McKenna of Sandwich, and Worth of 
Nantucket, he dared the dangerous feat, and he alone reached the opposite 
shore. His four companions were all shot or drowned. 

The great loss which the regiment had suffered in officers and men ren- 
dered a consolidation of the command necessary; and, upon the reorganiza- 
tion under Lieutenant Colonel Palfrey's direction. Lieutenant Macy was 
given the command of three companies, which he retained until his commis- 
sion as captain arrived, dating from Ball's Bluff, when he was assigned to the 
largest company in the regiment. Company L This company was composed 
chiefly of Nantucket men, recruited by Macy himself, and was unlike the 
other companies of the re^ment in that it consisted chiefly of Americans. 
Nor did it possess this advantage only, for the seafaring population of the 
old whaling town produced a daring and hardy class of young men, well 
fitted to be soldiers. First in the ranks was the brave and lamented Alley. 
Curiously enough, too, this company was singularly fortunate in its officers, 
and it was at once ranked first among the ten companies of the regiment. 

At the opening of the spring campaign of 1862, the Twentieth Regiment 
formed part of the Third brigade of the Second division of the Second 
corps, of the army of the Potomac. General Dana commanded the brigade, 
and that brave and much lamented officer, General John Sedgwick, the 
division. General Sumner had the corps, a veteran of sixty or seventy years, 
whose impetuous courage and fine soldierly traits made him felt and loved 
throughout his command. 

Sedgwick's division was at first sent across the Potomac at Harper's Ferry, 
early in March, but soon returned without seeing the enemy. In the early 
part of April, it was sent to the Peninsula, and with the rest of the army 
under General McClellan, took part in the siege of Yorktown. On the 



I 



3g4 MACT GENEALOGT. 

evacuation of the enemy's lines on the fomih of May the divisioDS of Frank- 
lin and Sedgwick were sent up the York river in steamers to West Pointy 
where an action of no great importance occurred. After some delay, the 
division arrived on the famous Chickahominy river. It was not long before 
the regiment had its second experience in battle — this time a successftd one. 
On the 31st of May, Johnston, then in command of the rebel army, attacked 
the two corps of Xeyes and Heintzleman, which had crossed the Chickaho- 
miny, and drove them in with considerable loss and confusion. Sumner, 
hearing the firing, put his coips under arms, and, late in the afternoon, 
crossed with Sedgwick's division and one battery. The troops encountered 
the enemy on the right of the rail road, about a mile east of the Nine Mile 
road. It was half-past five in the afternoon. After some few minutes of 
musketry fire, the enemy advanced to take the battery, which was poeted on 
the right of our line, but were easily repulsed, and fell back in confusion. 
Sumner then ordered a charge of four regiments, of which the Twentieth 
was one, which was made in gallant style, the enemy giving way at all points^ 
and leaving their position with their dead and wounded, in our hands. Here 
Brigadier General Pettigrew of South Carolina was captured, wounded, by 
Corporal Summerbages of Company L 

In the fighting which occurred the next day, the Twentieth was not actively 
engaged. For the next three weeks and more, the army lay on the Chicka- 
hominy, building intrenchments in their front, and exposed to harassing 
picket duty. At length, however, General Lee, who had succeeded Johnston 
in the command of the rebel army, commenced the manoeuvre which forced 
General McClellan to abandon his position. In the action at Beaver Dam 
creek, and the battle of Gaine's Mill the Twentieth took no part; but early 
on Sunday morning, June 29th, Sedgwick's division broke camp and 
covered the retreat of the corps, and, in fact, of the army. In the action which 
took place that day at Peach Orchard, Captain Macy, in command of two 
companies on the picket line, made a very gallant stand against the advance 
of the enemy, and succeeded in driving them back. At Savage's station, 
later in the day, the regiment was not actively engaged. On the next day, 
however, at the fiercely contested battle of Glendale, or Nelson's farm, as it is 
sometimes called, it sufiered severely. Sedgwick's division had been hurried 
up by General Sumner in person to retake the position from which the 
Pensylvania reserves, had after an obstinate resistance, been driven. The 
Third brigade came first upon the ground, the Twentieth headed the brigade. 



MACY GENEALOGY. 385 

Macy, with two companies, had the advance of the regiment. The advance 
was gallantly made under the immediate direction of General Sumner him- 
self, who rode right behind the Twentieth Regiment; and, in the teeth of a 
terrible fire of artillery and infantry, by which the troops suffered severely, 
the line steadily advanced, and retook some of McCall's guns, which had 
been captured by the enemy. The position finally had to be abandoned, but 
the regiment well maintained its reputation in this sanguinary action, in 
which nearly 140 officers and men fell. That night the army retreated to 
Malvern hill, where on the next day was fought the great battle which bears 
that name. The army then fell back to Harrison's landing. 

From this time till the middle of August, the troops lay quiet The health 
of the regiment was not good. Many officers had gone home sick, others were 
disabled by wounds. Captain Macy, however, was on duty, and in command 
of two companies, did more than his full share of the work. With the rest 
of the Second corps the regiment arrived in the neighborhood of Washington 
just in time to see the close of the campaign of General Pope. 

Wliile the 'army was marching northward in September, to drive the 
enemy from Maryland, Captain Macy was sent to Washington on regimental 
business, and did not return in time to be present at the great battle of 
Antietam. His horse, jaded and worn out, could carry him only within 
sound of the cannon, and he missed this battle, the first action since the 
regiment was formed in which he had not shared. He arrived to find the 
regiment much changed. Colonel Lee commanded the brigade in the absence 
of General Dana, who had been wounded; Lieutenant Colonel Palfrey had 
been permanently disabled by a dangerous wound ; Hallowell and Holmes 
had been severely injured ; Surgeon Revere had been killed. The army lay 
for a few weeks in the neighborhood of Harper's Ferry, and then commenced 
the march which ended in December, at Falmouth. Colonel Lee, after a 
most gallant resistance to repeated attacks of severe sickness, was at length 
obliged to leave the field ; and was succeeded in the command of the brigade 
by Colonel i^omian T. Hall, a most gallant and meritorious officer. Such 
were Captain Macy's merits, that he was commissioned major over the heads 
of his seniors, and specially assigned to the command of the regiment by 
General Howard, who, in the absence of Sedgwick, who had been wounded 
at Antietam, commanded the division. Sumner still led the Second corps, 
but Burnside had superseded McClellan in the command of the army.

386 MACY GENEALOGY. 

And now follows one of these great opportunities for military glory, which 
rarely happen in the history of any regiment, and which only fhose troops 
whose courage and steadiness have been often proved, perhaps on nnsnccessfbl 
fields, and whose discipline has been perfected in the long interims of camp- 
life, can improve. General Burnside, having determined not only to throw 
large bodies of troops across tlie Rappahannock, below Fredericksburg, but 
to force the passage of the river in front of the town, found it impossible to 
lay his pontoon bridges in the face of the destructive fire of the enemy's 
sharpshooters, concealed in the buildings which skirted the opposite shore. 
It was suggested to him by General Hunt, chief of artillery, that troops might 
be thrown over in the pontoon boats ; and Colonel Hall volunteered his brigade 
for the dangerous duty. The river here is about a quarter of a mile wide. 
The Seventh Michigan, Nineteenth and Twentieth Massachusetts sprang into 
the boats, and in spite of the enemy's fire, by which the brave Colonel Baxter 
of the first named regiment was wounded, pushed swiftjy across, and speedily 
drove away the enemy's riflemen fi'om their coverts. The bridge was com- 
pleted without further delay. This gallant feat of arms had solved the 
question for the army; and performed, as it was, in the face of both armies, 
won, for the troops engaged, a high and well deserved reputation. 

But the toughest struggle was yet to come — a struggle too in which no 
cloud of witnesses encouraged the combatants. The city had yet to be taken. 
The Seventh and Nineteenth wore ordered to deploy on both sides of the 
street, which led from the bridge up into the town, while to Major Macy, with 
his gallant regiment, was given the honor of leading the column of attack. 
His orders were "to clear the city at all hazards, and cut the canal." The 
task was, indeed, an arduous one. The regiments on the flanks rendered but 
little assistance in dislodging the enemy ; and the Twentieth advancing up 
the street in column, was exposed to a murderous fire fi'om behind fences and 
walls, and from the windows of houses. The column steadily advanced, never- 
theless ; but the oflieors and men fell at every step. Cabot was killed, shot 
through the head; Shephard, Patten, Curtis, McKay and other oflicers were 
wounded ; and in a Uttle more than an hour, for it was late in the afternoon, 
and darkness soon closed the contest, ninety-seven oflicers and men out of 
about 200 which the regiment brought into action, lay killed or wounded in 
that short street. But the regiment held its own, and finally compelled the 
enemy, among whom, singularly enough, were several regiments, which at 
Ball's Bluff*, in 1861, had driven the force of which the Twentieth formed a 



MACY GENEALOGY. 387 

part, into the Potomac, to retire from the city, and to leave it in our undis- 
puted possession. Rarely does the fortune of war reward valor more con- 
spicuously than in this instance, when the Twentieth not only crossed a river 
in face of their old enemy, but succeeded at length in driving them from 
their strong position, after a determined and stubborn resistance. Of sixty 
men of Company I, that went into the fight, thirty-five were killed and wounded. 
They fought with daring and courage, for they recognized their opponents, 
and their cry was "Ball's Bluff." 

That night Major Macy was relieved from his advanced position, and, 
being called to head-quarters, was highly complimented by General Howard 
and other officers. Few commanders could have held their men up to their 
work as well as he had done in that obstinately contested fight. 

But the great battle of Fredericksburg had yet to be fought On Saturday, 
the 13th of December, the brigade was ordered up the plank road, which 
crosses Marye's heights, to attack the enemy in position. Our limits do not 
admit of our doing more in the way of description, than merely to say, that 
these heights, on the south of the city, completely command all the open 
ground between them, and the city itself. Parallel with these heights, and 
at right angles with the roads, runs a canal ; and the troops sent to make the 
assault must march by the flank or in column up the two or three roads which 
lead to the heights, and which cross this canal on bridges, and then deploy 
to the right and left beyond the canal ; and this deployment must be made 
under a heavy fire and without cover. The Twentieth was the right regiment 
of the brigade and of the army; and when turning to the right it left the 
road to take its place in front the enemy's position, it had the largest 
distance to march. From the hills in front, the enemy were pouring down 
a terrible fire of shot and shell, while from the rifle-pits at their base came 
the murderous roll of musketry. The steadiness of the men had been some- 
what shaken by the severity of the fire, to which, while on the road and in 
column, they had been subjected, and to which, of course, they had been 
entirely exposed; now they had to leave the road, and to march a third of a 
mile, still within close range of the enemy's fire, but not facing it, until 
having reached their allotted place, they were to form in line, and attack and 
carry the rifle-pits and hills above. This was the plan, at least; but it was a 
plan, which, we venture to say, could not be carried out. Macy had left his 
horse at the road, and led the troops on foot. The regiment, under a 
terrible fire with admirable steadiness, formed " on the left by files into line,'* 



388 MACY GENEALOGY. 

and advanced with great gallantry. Bat a successful charge waa ont of the 
question. Some regiments on the left came to a stand or gave way, and, 
after one or two attempts, the troops were ordered to lie down, and so 
remained in a position fi*om which they could not be withdrawn till night. 
The loss had been very severe. Here fell the brave Alley, a loss to the 
regiment never to be replaced. Three officers and some sixty men had fallen 
in this worse than injudicious attempt Major Macy had done all with his 
command that man could do, and had won golden opinions from everybody; 
but he could not perform impossibilities. He was publicly thanked by 
General Howard, commanding the division, for the "noble conduct" of him 
and his regiment "in the late battles." Said an officer of the regiment, 
" Macy did splendidly. * * * gjg good judgment, bravery and 
perfect steadfastness deserve the very highest praise." 

The long winter which followed the battle of Fredericksburg passed quietly, 
but very pleasantly. Under the admirable discipline of General Hooker, 
the army soon recovered entirely from the demoralization in which that 
officer found it. Among other well chosen measures which he adopted at 
that time was to allow a greater number of furloughs to the private soldiers 
of those regiments which were found to be the best in drill and discipline, 
than was allowed to the rest. Among these were the First, Nineteenth, and 
Twentieth Massachusetts. Officers also were allowed leaves of absence. 
Major Macy improved his chance at home to the best advantage. On the 
16th of February, 1863, he was married to Miss Mary M. Hayden. Duty 
however, soon recalled hiui to the front. General Hooker had organized 
boards of officers to examine those officers whose fitness for the right dis- 
charge of their duties was questioned, and Major Macy was detailed on one 
of these courts. Unpleasant as must often have been the task, it was never- 
theless one, which, faithfully performed as it was, rendered great service to 
the army by ridding it of many useless creatures unfit to hold a commission. 

In the ill managed operations which General Hooker directed w^th the 
main army under his immediate command at Chaneellorsville, the Twentieth 
had no share. The iSeeond division of the Second corps, then commanded by 
Gibbon, who had succeeded Howard, was left at first at Falmouth; but when 
General Sedgwick with the Sixth corps carried the heights of Fredericksburg 
on the third of May, the division formed a part of the attacking force; and 
though it was not actively engaged in the assault, yet it was exposed to a 
severe artillery tire, from which the Twentieth lost two officers and several 



MACY GENEALOGY. 389 

men killed and wounded. Sedgwick left Hall's brigade in charge of the 
town, and when the campaign was ingloriously ended, it recrossed to its old 
camp at Falmouth. 

We come now to the memorable campaign of Gettysburg. General Lee, 
encouraged by his repeated successes, had determined to carry the war into 
the enemy's country, and finish the struggle by a decisive battle on northern 
ground. He had driven McClellan from the Peninsula, had forced Pope 
with great loss to Washington, had held his own with credit against a superior 
force at Antietam, had easily repulsed the assaults of Burnside upon Fredericks- 
burg heights, had baffled the well conceived strategy of Hooker, and, by a 
series of most daring and brilliant movements had reduced that officer to a 
state of mind in which he had abandoned the campaign, and he now felt 
himself able to take the offensive in his turn, especially as the temper of his 
army was all that could be desired, and that his troops had formed a very 
high, and in fact an unwarranted estimate of theirown prowess, as compared 
with that of their antagonists. We cannot follow the marches which preceded 
the great battle of Gettysburg; but undoubtedly they reflected credit on 
General Hooker's military ability. Fortunately, however, for the army, he 
was just before the battle superseded by General Meade. 

On the night of the first day of July, 1863, after many weary marches, 
the Twentieth went into camp on the field of Gettysburg. The regiment 
was led by Revere, who had rejoined his command to take the colonelcy, 
Macy being commissioned lieutenant colonel. The previous day had seen 
the First and Eleventh corps defeated, after a gallant stand, by the advance 
columns of Lee's army, and the death of that excellent soldier. General 
Reynolds. That famous position, however, stretching from Gulfs and Wolfs 
bills on the right, round by Cemetery hill on the centre, down to Little and 
Great Round Top on the extreme left, had been held, and was now being 
manned by the often defeated, but always stubborn and unconquerable 
battalions of the army of the Potomac. 

The low ridge which stretches from Cemetery hill to Little Round Top, 
faces nearly west. Near Cemetery hill it was held by the troops of the First 
corps ; then came Hancock, with the redoubtable Second corps, that corps 
which had done the hardest fighting in the army, and which had never lost 
a gun or a color ; then came that dangerous gap in the line due to the error 
of General Sickles in throwing the Third corps out on the Emmittsburg road. 
The battle began about two in the aft;ernoon by the fierce attack upon the

Third corps, which was driven in with great loss. The enemy pressed their 
advantage with great resolution, and the left of the Second corps was involved 
in the conflict, which was desperately fought on hoth sides. Though not 
engaged actively, and lying in the second line, the Twentieth suffered con- 
siderably, losing some forty or fifty officers and men, the brave Colonel 
Revere also being mortally wounded. But the great struggle, not the most 
critical, perhaps, but certainly the most striking and decisive in its results 
upon the troops engaged, was yet to come ; and here, as at Nelson ^s fkrm, 
Antietam and Fredericksburg, the Twentieth was in the thickest of the fight. 
On Friday, the third of July, about one in the afternoon, the enemy opened 
upon us with a fire of more than a hundred pieces of cannon. That fire, 
replied to by our own batteries of nearly equal number, lasted two hours, 
and was the most terrible artillery fire of the war. Then the masses of the 
rebel infantry deployed fi*om the woods some half or three-quarters of a 
mile opposite. The attack was to have been made in three columns : Heth's 
division, commanded by Pettigrew, on the left; Pickett's division in the centre, 
and Wilcox's brigade of Anderson's division on the right Wilcox did not 
arrive on the ground until the other troops had been repulsed ; Pettigrew and 
Pickett, however, advanced simultaneously. The former division, when in 
the open ground, wavered under the heavy fire, to which it was subjected, and 
broke, in spite of all eftbrts to rally it. But the veteran troops of Pickett, 
under that daring officer and his three gallant brigadiers, Armistead, Kemper, 
and Garnett, crossed the plain in perfect order, closing their ranks to fill up 
the great gaps made by our fire, and reached our position. That portion of 
) their line in front of where Hall's brigade was posted, was withered as in a 

!i moment by the terrible fire of musketry. Macy ordered his men to hold 

their fire until the enemy were close upon them, when the regiment gave 
them such a volley as actually to clear their front. But a little further to our 
right, the rebel troops sternly forced their way in, and, seizing the cannon of 
our batteries, poured in a deadly fire upon the supporting brigades of Webb 
and Harrow. Hall, with great promptness, ordered his brigade up fix)m the 
left, and told Colonel Macy to move his regiment to the right The noise 
was deafening, scarcely an order was heard, for Pickett's men were fighting 
their best, and the roll of musketry was terrible. Macy seized the colors of 
the Twentieth, and carried them to the right, towards the close ring which 
was being formed around the rebel troops, at the same time ordering Abbott 
to bring up his men, and sending an officer to the left wing of the regiment 



MACY GENEALOGY. ^ 391 

to hurry up the left companies. That officer was wounded ; but the officers 
of those companies, seeing the colonel with the regimental colors, hastily 
abandoned their position, and the whole regiment rushed up at the double 
quick, fixing bayonets as they moved, and poured in a deadly fire upon 
Pickett's ill-fated troops. The carnage was awful, both sides were fighting 
with desperation. One ball tore oflF one of Colonel Macy's shoulder straps; 
another struck his sword, and dashed off the blade ; others passed through 
his clothes; finally two more tore his left hand to shreds and obliged him to 
leave the field, but he was not off the ground when the shout of victory went 
up. The enemy had been beaten, and in a few minutes the remnants of 
that gallant rebel division had either surrendered at discretion, or were 
endeavoring to escape across that dangerous field over which they had just 
now so bravely marched to the attack. The Twentieth had nobly done their 
part in this memorable contest; but at an unparalleled sacrifice. Three 
officers and less than a hundred men alone remained out of thirteen officers 
and more than two hundred men, who had entered this great battle. 

Colonel Macy's left hand had been amputated on the field ; and the same 
evening he was riding in an ambulance with General Gibbon — who had 
commanded the division and had also been wounded — to Westminster, on his 
way home. Here he was compelled to remain some three months ; and he 
did not rejoin his command until just after the action at Bristoe Station, in 
October, 1863. He was with his regiment in the movement upon the enemy's 
position at Mine Eun in December; but, though the army suffered a good 
deal from exposure, no other loss was sustained, as no attack was made. 

In the ensuing winter. Colonel Macy — for by Revere's death he had suc- 
ceeded to the colonelcy of the regiment — was detailed on recruiting service at 
home. Having at length brought the numbers of the regiment up to the 
required limit, he rejoined the army just as it had crossed the Rapidan for 
Grant's famous campaign. 

The Second corps under Hancock had made a wide detour, and was for 
the time separated from the rest of the army, and Macy was obliged to rest 
satisfied in the first day of the great battle of the Wilderness, with acting as 
volunteer aid to General Sedgwick, commanding the Sixth corps. He 
found the Twentieth, however, that afternoon, as it was coming up to take 
its position with the rest of Gibbon's division, on the left of the line. On 
the next day, Friday, the sixth of May, 1864, the battle was renewed with 
great fierceness on both sides. It was a battle that cannot be well described. 



392 MACY GENEALOGY. 

It was fought in a forest, and in a forest of thickets. Macy's command was 
in good fighting trim. Rarely, if ever, had his veteran regiment gone into 
a battle in better spirits and condition, and never had it been better led. 
Macy, Abbott, Curtis, Patten, Perkins, Bond, Kelliher, and many other 
brave and experienced officers took their men into this terrible contest, with 
every determination to win. It is true that there were many recruits in the 
ranks, but there were some two or three hundred of the old veterans too, and 
these enabled the fresh troops to sustain with steadiness the shock of battle. 
For an hour and a half Hancock steadily advanded over the corpses of the 
men of A. P. Hill's command, driving back the enemy with great gallantry, 
but it was only to be driven back in his turn. For when Longstreet had, 
late in the forenoon, succeeded in getting his corps into position, and in or- 
ganizing an attack on us, Hancock was forced back with great slaughter. 
Here Longstreet himself was wounded, and his advance was checked. The 
lines of battle swayed back and forth, and finally when night closed upon 
the combatants, Hancock retained but part of the ground won in the 
morning. 

The Twentieth had suffered severely. Two hundred and forty officers and 
men had been killed and wounded. Colonel Macy had been shot through 
one leg, and had received a serious contusion on the other. Abbott, that gallant 
and brilliant soldier, had been mortally wounded ; Perkins, Bond, and many 
other valuable officers wounded more or less severely. The regiment was 
left under the command of Curtis, who held it only for less than a fortnight, 
when he too was wounded at Spottsylvania. The command then fell to the 
brave and lamented Patten, who carried the regiment from Spottsylvania, 
through the battles at the North Anna, Tolopotamoy, Cold Harbor, and 
Petersburg, till, at Deep Bottom, on the 16th of August, he, too, was mortally 
wounded. 

Colonel Macy's wound was slower in healing than he desired. He was 
not able to take the field again till the 14th of August. His first care was to 
relieve Major Patten, and a leave of absence was actually prepared; but, as 
will be shown, owing to Macy being himself wounded the same day of his 
return to command. Patten was obliged to remain, only to be mortally 
wounded on the next day but one. Colonel Macy arrived just as the second 
movement on the north side of the James was being made, and was at once 
assigned to the command of the First brigade of the Second division of the 
Second corps, and ordered to report to General Barlow, who commanded his 




MACY GENEALOGY. 393 

own and this division. The same afternoon, the 14th of August, he was 
ordered to attack with his brigade a portion of the enemy's line at Deep 
Bottom. The position to be assailed was strong, and the distance to be 
traversed was considerable. Macy led the troops in the most gallant manner, 
mounted on a powerftd black horse, which he had borrowed of General 
Barlow, his own having already been shot under him in making a dangerous 
reconnoissance of the ground. Half way across the plain, the enemy's fire 
being very severe, and it requiring the constant presence of Colonel Macy at 
all points to keep the line steadily advancing, his horse was struck, and, 
springing high in the air, fell heavily to the ground, his rider underneath. 
Fearftilly crushed and bruised, Macy had yet force and spirit enough to 
extricate himself, and lead his troops on foot to the ravine, through which ran 
a stream, behind which the enemy was posted. Here his strength gave out, 
he fell insensible, and was with difficulty carried to the rear, where, notwith- 
standing every attention that the great skill of his old Mend, Dr. Hayward, 
the surgeon of his regiment, could render, his life was, for some twenty-four 
hours, almost despaired of. But his naturally strong constitution at length 
prevailed, and he recovered so fer as to be able to travel home. 

He did not, however, get entirely over this severe injury until late in the 
foil. He soon received the commission of brevet brigadier general, to date 
from the 14th of August, 1864, for gallant conduct at the battle of the 
Wilderness and at Deep Bottom. On his return to the front, he was assigned 
to the command of a brigade, composed of ten New York regiments, which 
was attached to General Miles's (First) division of the Second corps ; but he 
held this position only for a short time, being soon given the command of 
General Miles's old brigade, composed of the Fifth New Hampshire, Sixty-first 
New York, Twenty-sixth Michigan, Eighty-first, One hundred and fortieth 
and One hundred and Eighty-third Pennsylvania, and Second New York 
heavy artillery, some thirty-five hundred men in all, a brigade, which, under 
the able lead of that distinguished soldier. General Miles, had won a great 
reputation for itself in the army. But with the exception of a skirmish at 
Hatcher's Run in December, he saw no active service this winter. 

In February, 1865, General Macy was prevailed upon to accept the position 
of provost marshal general of the army of the Potomac, at the personal 
request of General Meade. Loth, as he was, to exchange his fine command 
for this more laborious and more safe duty, he was induced to do so mainly 
by the conviction that the war was near its close, and that but littie more 

50

hard fighting was to be expected. For this new position he wms admirmblT 
fitted. Ilia excellent busineas habits, his method and ajstem, enabled him 
to perform its duties to the satisfaction of ererr one ; while his perfect self> 
reliance and willingness to take responsibility, were Teij necesBmry traits in 
an officer, who is always left in so m&ny things to his own discretion, ms ia 
the proyost marshal general; and who, in this, the last f mpaign of the 
army of the Potomac, receiyed under his command as prisoners a large part 
of the army of Northern Virginia. Accompanying, as he did, for a great 
part of the time during the campaign, the head-quarters of the armj, he was 
broaght into closer relations with the officers highest in rank, than he had 
eyer been during his long career of hard service in the raiment; and he 
made everywhere a most favorable and permanent impression. His duties, 
which were arduous indeed — for portions of the army of General Lee, some^ 
times many thousand men, were captured almost every day during that 
exciting week — were thoroughly performed. Soon after the close of the war, 
he received the commission of major general by brevet, to date from the 
9th of April, 1865, the day of the surrender, for ^^ gallant and meritorious 
services." 

On the first day of the great review in Washington, in June, 1865, the 
day when the army of the Potomac marched for the last time as an army. 
General Macy, at the head of the provost marshal's brigade, composed of 
cavalry and regular in&ntry, followed General Meade and his staff Then 
by virtue of his poriition as provost marshal general, he took his place with 
the general and the high officers of the government, there to witness that 
noble and rao3t imposing procession of the soldiers of the republic: first, the 
arrny of the Potomac; then, on the follovring day, the army under General 
Sherman. A proud position surely, and surely well earned. From Ball's 
Bluff to Af)poraattox Court House he had marched and fought. He had 
served through the peninsular campaign of General McClellan ; had 
Herved in the dan/^ers of the first and second attacks on Fredericksburg; had 
lost a hand at Gettysburg; had been wounded at the Wilderness and 
again on the James; but he had been preserved in all his perils; he had 
never lost a day by sickness ; he had ser\'ed long and faitbftilly, and he was 
now enjoying his reward. Starting as a first lieutenant, he had won his 
way by gallantry and efficiency to be a major general by brevet. Few men 
had done more for their country. 

The army of the Potomac having been disbanded, Macy was one of the 




MACY GENEALOGY. 395 

few officers retained in the provisional corps, then thought to be destined for 
Texas, and was assigned to a brigade under General Wright, who commanded 
the corps ; but after this idea was abandoned, and no further hope of active 
service seemed to offer, he was mustered out of the service ; and returned to 
his home, to engage again in the peaceful pursuits of business life. 

"Gbn. Macy. — In forwarding to General Macy his commission of brevet 
brigadier general for * distinguished conduct at the battle of the Wilderness 
and at Deep Bottom,' General Meade says : ^ It affords me great pleasure to 
be the medium of transmitting to you this mark of the recognition by the 
government, of the highly meritorious services you have rendered to the 
country, since I have had the honor to command tiiie army of the Potomac." 

The following extracts of lettera were addressed to me, 8. J. M. 

Major General Meade writes : " He was my provost marshal general at 
the close of the war, and was selected by me on account of his brilliant 
military record and his high reputation as an officer, being always distin- 
guished in battle, and very often seriously wounded." 

General Barlow writes : " I am able to speak only as to the general report 
which prevailed in the army in regard to him. That spoke of him as an 
officer, very conspicuous for his gallantry, and distinguished for his skill and 
military qualities. On one occasion only did he come under my personal 
observation, and that was at Deep Bottom, Va., in August, 1864. He was 
in command of a brigade which attacked the enemy's works, under my 
command, he being sent to me for that day only. I saw him shot from his 
horse while urging on his men and exhibiting very conspicuous daring. He 
was the only officer who remained mounted under the severe fire of the 
enemy, thereby exposing himself in an unusual degree. In my official 
report of this affiiir, I remember that I commended him alone of all officers." 

From the report of Brigadier General F. C. Barlow, commanding First 
division. Second army corps, of the operations of his division in July and 
August, 1864, at Deep Bottom, Va. :

General Alexander S. Webb writes: "When I took command of the 
Second division, Second corps, I heard a great deal of General G. N. Macy, 
of the Twentieth Massachusetts, then Colonel Macy. Every one spoke of him as 
an accomplished officer of marked character. He did not, however, join my 
command until after the battle of Bristow station, October 14th, 1863. During 
the winter of '63 and '64, 1 saw a great deal of him, and from personal observa- 
tion I was convinced that he was one of the best officers of his rank in 
the army of the Potomac. His intelligent discipline kept the Twentieth 
Massachusetts up to the high standard they had adopted under General 
Raymond Lee, and I was justly proud of him as an officer. 

" He had then been badly wounded, and I knew from his reputation that he 
was brave. He did not fight under my eye until May 6, 1864. Then in the 
battle of the Wilderness he was shot in the leg. Shot in the head on the 
12th inst., myself, I left the field for five months. When I returned as 
chief of staff of the army of the Potomac, Macy was with the Second division.

Meade made him provost marshal general, and a capital one he was."

William W. Macy enlisted as a private soldier in Co. C, 19th Regiment 
Indiana Infantry Vols., July 15, 1861. Mustered into U. S, service at 
Indianapolis, Ind., July 29, 1861, and was shortly after promoted to 5th duty 
sergeant. The regiment was ordered to Washington city, August 5, arrived 
there on the 9th, and was immediately assigned to duty with the grand 
army of the Potomac, forming part of the First brigade, First division and 
First army corps. The following year passed in the usual routine of camp 
life, until the battle of Cedar mountain, August 9, 1862. Then, under com- 
mand of General Pope, they participated in the skirmishes with Stonewall 
Jackson, along the Rappahannock, and took an active part in the battles of 
Qainesville, 2nd Bull Run, South Mountain, and Antietam, in the latter of 
which Macy received his first battle scar in the shape of a *' minie track," 
on his skull. He was in the battles of Fredericksburg, December 12 and 15,

1862; went into winter quarters at Belle Plain landing, December 18, 1862; 
mustered as 1st lieutenant, April 26, 1863 ; and took part in the engagements 
at Fitz Hugh crossing, April 28 ; at Chancellorsville, May 3 ; and at Gettys- 
burg, July Ist and 4th 1863. On the morning of the 3d of July, just about 
daybreak, as he was lying asleep on the ground, he received another minie 
ball on his head, which proved more serious than the former one, but did not 
leave so ugly a scar. He was detailed November 1, 1863, to return to the 
state of Indiana, on recruiting service. He returned to duty with the regiment, 
February 24, 1864; was taken sick with small-pox, March 3 ; spent one month 
and a half in the hospital, and then had thirty days leave of absence to visit 
his parents, whom he had not seen since first joining the army. He rejoined 
his regiment at the Pamunky river, Va., June 1, 1864, after which he par- 
ticipated in the battles around Petersburg and Richmond. Was in line just 
to the left at the springing of the mine in front of Petersburg, July 29th, and 
participated in the battle of the Weldon R. R., August 18 and 21. The 
19th Indiana Regiment was consolidated with the 20th Indiana Regiment 
October 19, 1864, and he was commissioned as captain of Co. A., 20th

Hatches and Gravelly Run, and in the running fight aft;er Lee's army from the 
evacuation of Richmond, until his surrender April 9, 1865. He was mustered 
out of service at Indianapolis, Ind., July 12, 1865, having served within 
three days of four years. By his bravery and skill he advanced from a 
private soldier to a captaincy. He has laid aside the sword, and is following 
commercial pursuits at Farmland, Ind., having rendered valuable service to 
his country.

Cyrus Macy (1770), removed with his parents from Ghent to Hndson in 
1830. Was educated at Hudson, and at the age of twenty-two, in 1847, he 
removed to Xashville, Tenn., and became interested in the publication of a 
daily newspaper, then called the Xashcille Orthopoliian. Was elected alderman 
for the municipality of South Nashville, in 1849, and, whilst holding that 
position he framed and succeeded in having passed the board of aldermen, 
an ordinance for the erection and midntenance of the first public school 
established in the state of Tennessee. Upon the election of Zacharj Taylor 
as president of the United States, he received an appointment to a position 
in the department of the interior, and removed to Washington, D. C, in 
1851. During his residence there he contemplated a similar undertaking to 
this, and made considerable progress, when he was so unfortunate as to have 
all his manuscript destroyed by the fire, which occurred in the congressional 
libraiy- in . The author never knew until the present time, 

of the fact that it was ever contemplated by any one else to write a genealo- 
gical history of the family, and regrets that the unfortunate fire should have 
deprived us of the valuable information collected by Cyrus Macy. After 
living in Washington three years, he returned to Hudson, N. Y., and engaged 
in the dry goods business. He at present holds the position of superintendent 
of public instruction for the city of Hudson, and is also president of tlie 
Franklin Library Association. The writer is indebted to him for much 
valuable assistance in obtaining information for this work, and is pleased here 
to record his sincere thanks.
